Incredibly creamy and delicious with the most beautiful hue, this blueberry peanut butter smoothie comes together in minutes. Berry smoothies are such a wonderful way to start your day or enjoy as a mid-afternoon snack.
Every summer my pop (grandfather) gives me a huge bucket of freshly picked Newfoundland blueberries. We eat some straight out of the bucket and then freeze the rest to enjoy throughout the year and, let me tell you, they’re really appreciated. Talk about sweet and delicious, especially for blueberry smoothies.
Hubby and I enjoy smoothies on the regular, mostly on Saturday when we’re on the go doing odds and ends around the house.
Sometimes I’ll make smoothies during weekday mornings, if time allows. Though they take minutes to prepare, time is precious in the morning and sometimes this lady just needs that extra 5 minutes of sleep time; feel me?
Do you remember back in, like, kindergarten when we used to take little naps during the day? The teacher would turn the lights down, we’d put our little heads on our desk and take a little nap. Ya know, I think they were on to something!! Ha! Wouldn’t I love to be able to do that now. Around 3pm each day, I’m pooped!
Anyway, I digress. Perhaps this vibrantly-hued, flavour-packed frozen fruit smoothie will help me out. A girl can dream, right?
Why We Love This Blueberry Peanut Butter Smoothie
- The berries give this smoothie such a pretty colour.
- This smoothie is packed with delicious blueberries.
- The recipe uses frozen fruit that you probably have on hand in your freezer (you don’t have to wait for what’s in season).
- Like most smoothie recipes, it comes together in minutes.
- It’s made with just 4 simple ingredients.
- It a delicious breakfast or snack.
- It’s dairy free (but can be made with dairy, if you like).
- It’s refined sugar free and naturally sweetened with blueberry goodness.
- It probably goes without saying, but this blueberry peanut butter smoothie tastes delicious!
Can I Use Dairy Instead of Almond Milk?
Absolutely! Use your favourite dairy milk if you like. Other delicious options are soy milk or oat milk. If you want to add another element of flavour, try vanilla flavoured oat or almond milk.
Do I Have To Use Banana?
Nope! I love bananas in smoothies because they add lushness and creaminess. You can’t really taste it here, but you can omit if you like. Feel free to sub in some more blueberries.
Tips and Variations
- There’s no added sugar here, but you can add some maple syrup or honey, if you like.
- This smoothie is thick! Thin things out with more milk if you like a looser consistency.
- Amp things up with protein powder. A peanut butter flavoured protein powder would be lovely in this smoothie.
- I drizzled these fruity smoothies with some melted peanut butter and topped with crushed peanuts. This is totally optional! It does create quite the lovely colour contrast, though, and add an extra layer of peanut butter flavour.
- More delicious smoothie topping ideas for this blueberry peanut butter smoothie are blueberries, chia seeds, flax seeds or oats.

That color is amazing! This smoothie is a great way to start the day or for that afternoon pick-me-up when we start dragging!
So awesome you get freshly picked blueberries every summer. This smoothie is so pretty and I love the combination of flavors — I always add the banana for the creaminess you mentioned. And beautiful photos, Dawn! 🙂 ~Valentina
Dawn – If the stunning color wasn’t enough (it definitely WAS!) to make me want to make this, the peanut butter, as usual, got me all the way there! Yum yum yum! What a great breakfast, lunch, or snack (post-naptime, of course)! Thanks for the beautiful recipe!
What a beautiful vibrant smoothie! I love adding blueberries to my smoothies — and the pb really helps me feel full for longer! 🙂 Yum!

What a wonderful flavour combination and a great, protein-filled smoothie to enjoy any time!
David @ Spiced
Oh man, I’d love to go back to naptimes again – why did those ever have to stop!? Either way, this smoothie sounds fantastic, Dawn! We pick a bunch of blueberries at a local farm here every summer…and it’s almost time. I’ll save this recipe for that! Oh, and I second the banana in there – I almost always put a banana in smoothies for the extra creamy texture!
