I don’t know about you but I like my smoothies thick and creamy, not watery and thin.
Hence why I love using unsweetened canned coconut milk in them. It just takes them to a whole new level of creamy goodness. That’s also why I like to use frozen fruits in my smoothies. It just makes them that much creamier…
But enough about creaminess—let’s talk about this smoothie! (or maybe about how many times I just said the word creamy)
I love the heck out of blueberries. They’re like antioxidant superheroes. And they taste amazing to top it all off. I only use 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries in this smoothie, but you could honestly use more or less depending on your preference.
I only recently got into using protein powder and making “protein” foods because I’m trying to get fit. So I was super excited to see protein powder in my monthly ALOHA box.
I’ve tried several different protein powders in the past month or two, and none of them have come close to how amazing the ALOHA protein powder is. At 18 grams of protein, it’s enough to get me through the day with tons of energy.
When I know I’ve got an intense workout that day, I’ll save my smoothie for afterward. Not only does it give me something to look forward to (ahem, mouth-watering smoothie), but it helps me to recharge.
I could drink this blueberry coconut protein smoothie every day! There’s so much summery, creamy flavor packed into one glass, not to mention how many nutrients in just one sip!
Even if you’re not someone who works out on the daily, you’ll love this blueberry coconut protein smoothie! It’s an easy to way to get the nutrients your body needs to refuel and start your day.
Here’s the recipe:
- ½ cup frozen blueberries (or more to taste)
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 packet ALOHA vanilla protein powder
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend for 3-4 minutes, or until smooth. Serve immediately.
