Bliss Blueberry Nut Butter Smoothie

This Bliss Blueberry Nut Butter smoothie is the Virgo smoothie from our Smoothie Horoscope collection. Virgo are known for their perfectionist, dedicated and practical nature so you know this smoothie is guaranteed to bring the perfect balance of flavors and nutrition to your day any day.

This DELICIOUS smoothie was inspired by our founder Ruth's go-to post-workout smoothie at her gym's juice bar. It boasts the perfect balance of protein and healthy fats, gets its sweetness 100% naturally from the fruit and is packed with antioxidants, fibre, nutrients (including Vitamin C, Vitamin K and potassium), and adaptogenic, immune-supporting goodness from JOYÀ's Cacao Elixir. Perfect for post-workout nourishing or an energizing breakfast, decadence has literally never been this good (or good for you!).

Just like our Virgo friends, this smoothie is about as perfect as it gets!

Ingredients

  • ½ large banana (or 1 small)
  • ⅓ cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)
  • ⅓ cup avocado (about ¼ large avocado)
  • 1 tbsp JOYÀ Cacao Elixir Blend
  • 2 tbsp nut butter of choice (almond, pecan or hazelnut is great here!)
  • optional: scoop of your favorite protein powder (plain, vanilla or cacao)
  • crushed ice
  • water or milk of choice
  • optional toppings/mix-ins: hemp seeds, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, bee pollen*

*Note: omit bee pollen to keep the recipe vegan.

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients (except toppings/mix-ins) to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and no chunks remain.
  2. Pour into glass(es), optionally add toppings/mix-ins and enjoy!
Pro Tip: Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 24 hours. Alternatively, pour leftovers into an ice cube tray and use to make other smoothies!
