Blueberries and Cream Green Smoothie

Blueberries and Cream Green Smoothie for the 17 Day Diet

This is one of my popular green smoothie recipes, Blueberries and Cream Green Smoothie, that we featured in both a previous 17 Day Diet weight loss challenge and my green smoothie recipe book called Addicted!

This Blueberries and Cream Green Smoothie is pretty basic – three ingredients is all you need.

First there’s the star of the show, blueberries.

Using frozen blueberries in this green smoothie keeps the smoothie nice and cold

The recipe calls for frozen blueberries. If you have fresh blueberries, you can use these too.

However, using frozen fruit in any smoothie is going to keep your smoothie nice and chilled!

The next ingredient is spinach.

Spinach is a nutrient-rich veggie

A great tip is to freeze your spinach ahead of time.  Using frozen spinach will help your smoothie ingredients blend better.

Lastly, the liquid in this smoothie is plain yogurt.

If you’re not a fan of plain yogurt, feel free to substitute with kefir or homemade almond milk. Use the same measurement as you would with yogurt.

Yogurt is a great way to get your probiotics in

 

Smoothies are a great go-to snack or breakfast when you’re busy and need something in a pinch.

It’s even quicker if you have all of your smoothie ingredients (except for the liquid) pre-packaged and frozen in individual serving sizes in a sealable bag.

Plus, like I mentioned earlier, having your spinach frozen ahead of time helps with the blending process!

When you have individual packets ready to go, you just dump your ingredients right into the blender, add your liquid and blend away!

If you’re looking at a meal replacement, consider adding a bit of whey protein to your smoothie, and maybe a drizzle of coconut or olive oil.

After you try this Blueberries and Cream Green Smoothie, you can also create your own smoothie recipe by following my custom green smoothie formula.

  1. Started 4days ago..Loving it..My question is I can’t find sugar free yogurt.Would you tell me what yogurt I can have. And I’d also like to know if I could have fat-free ricotta cheese with blueberries? Thank you

    • Hi Julie, you’ll likely have a difficult time finding sugar free yogurt (I don’t think one really exists). The best thing to do is look for a yogurt that has no sugar added or any artificial sweeteners. Best to keep the grams of sugar under 9 per 6 oz serving. Fat free ricotta would be considered a condiment under the C1 food list and should be used in moderation.

      • Hi Julie and Torey, My friend have been on the 17Day Diet for 2 months….excellent! We buy local made yogurt from cows that are 100% grass fed. We avoid the vanilla flavored because it has extra sugar and buy the plain….delicious!
