Blueberry Pear Smoothie

 

So we are now into the “cool colors” side of the Rainbow of Smoothies, and almost to the end. We’ve covered Red, Orange, Yellow, and Green.

Have you tried any? Do you have a favorite yet?

Today we bring you: Blue! With blueberries, of course. I wonder if blueberries ever get tired of being the default “blue” food item? Because really, there aren’t many naturally occurring blue foods.

When I was searching for inspiration, I did come across something that seemed like a total trick at first, called Blue Majik spirulina powder. But nope, it is forreal, there are actually blue pigmented algae that you can buy as a supplement to make Pinterest-worthy smoothies and smoothie bowls.

But, in the interest of keeping the recipe simple and within budget, the much more common and often on sale this time of year fruit is the way to go.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 whole fresh pear
  • 1 cup coconut water or milk
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • Optional: Dash of lime juice

Blend all ingredients in a blender on high until smooth. Frozen berries will create a thick smoothie, fresh will be a bit thinner. If using fresh, you can add a handful of ice for similar texture.

    1. Right? It’s like, clearly you put food coloring or something in there, that color doesn’t exist in nature! Well, evidently cerulean blue algae is a thing. And not gonna lie, I want some. Maybe I’ll have to fit an Amazon order in the food budget soon.
