“I don’t have much appetite in the morning. . . “

What about this blueberry smoothie? It’s refreshing and wake you up right away!

Smoothie is the best way to boost up your energy. Fruits contain glucose and fructose and convert them into energy quickly, so it is perfect to start your active day.

Recommend this recipe for

  • someone who love blueberries
  • someone who wants to try smoothie for breakfast
  • someone who looks for simple smoothie recipe

We always have this blueberry smoothie on Sunday mornings(green smoothie on weekday mornings). Prepare with kids, drink together, and then slowly start cooking breakfast, my favorite day of the week.

In this post, I will talk about ingredients, how to make it and also blender that I use. Does that sound interesting to you? please read on.

Ingredients for Blueberry Smoothie

We are gonna need only 4 ingredients.

  • Blueberries
  • Bananas
  • Soy milk
  • Water

When blueberries are in the season, please go get them. Otherwise, frozen blueberries are always handy.

How To Make Blueberry Smoothie

The steps is super easy. Just one step.

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

If your blender has a smoothie button, just press it.If not, continue blending for about a minute until you don’t see any chunk.

The color will change over time, so pour it into a glass and drink it as soon as possible.

Tweak to your taste

Adding more water makes it a light smoothie, and adding less water makes it a thick smoothie. Jut tweak the water to your preference.

Add some avocado : If you like the creamy smoothie, putting 1/4 avocado is a good idea. That would make you so satisfy.

Add some lemon : If you squeeze a wedge of lemon, the sourness will give it a nice punch and come out so delicious.

The Best Blenders

If you consider buying a blender for smoothies, I recommend a high-powered blender.

There are two choices, Vitamix or Blendtec.

Compare Two Blenders

Let’s compare Blendtec and Vitamix one by one.

ItemVitamixBlendtec
Horsepower2.23
Price(in Japan)from 60,000 yenfrom 40,000yen
FeaturesAdjust with the speed dial, comes with a temperPreset button
Size/WeightHeight 51cm/5.1kgHeight 40cm/3.2kg

Blendtec has more horsepower, but both are powerful enough to make a smoothie.

While Vitamix has a dial to adjust the speed, Blendtech has preset buttons such as soup and smoothie, so just press the button and start blending.

The Vitamix comes with a stick called temper. If the food get clogged, you can push it down with it. You can also use it to make a smoothie bowl (less water and something like a pudding).

When it comes to choose blender, the size is also important element. Vitamix is ​​tall and large and on the other hand Blend Tech is more conpact.

There are many small differences, but you can choose either one if you just make a smoothie. If you want to make raw sweets or smoothie bowls then you should choose Vitamix with temper.

The Reason I chose Blendtec

When I was looking for a blender, I spent a lot of time on comparing both Vitamix and Blendtec and eventually I picked Blendtec.

The reason is

  • The height is just perfect on our kitchen counter
  • The design is simple
  • It’s cheaper than Vitamix

Vitamix is too tall for our kitchen counter and Blendtec is smaller and I like the simple design.

I use Blendtec every day for 6 years and it doesn’t give me any troubles so far. The initial cost was high but I think a high-powered blender is totally worth buying.
