This refreshing blueberry apple smoothie is a healthy and delicious drink packed with nutrients and lovely flavors. A great way to jumpstart your day!
If you haven’t yet been affected by a smoothie obsession, it’s about time! Smoothies are excellent as a healthy beverage, and they are often filling enough to consume as light meals.
Here are my favorite reasons to drink smoothies:
- They only take a few minutes to make.
- They are healthy and contain plenty of vitamins and minerals.
- The natural sweetness from the fruit and berries make them taste amazing.
- As they are chilled, they are very refreshing and an excellent way to hydrate in the summer heat.
All you need to make this delicious blueberry apple smoothie is just 3 ingredients: frozen blueberries, apples, and almond milk (or any other milk).
You can make the smoothie with fresh blueberries instead, but I prefer to use frozen berries. They make sure that the smoothie is chilled, and give it a thicker texture than fresh blueberries would.
I also like to use almond milk, as its creamy but still light and low calorie. You can however use your favorite milk, such as oat milk, cow’s milk or coconut milk.

💭 Top tips
Here are my top tips to make the BEST blueberry apple smoothie:
- Use frozen blueberries for the best thick, creamy texture, and to keep the smoothie chilled.
- If you want a more liquid smoothie, you can add more milk. If you want a thicker smoothie, you can use less milk.
- Use your favorite apples! I typically use Granny Smith apples, but any type will work perfectly fine. Red apples typically have a milder flavor than green apples.
🍲 Storing leftover smoothie
Smoothies taste best immediately after making them. They can be stored in the fridge for up to a few hours before serving them.
If you have any leftovers, you can freeze the smoothie in popsicle molds for some homemade icy treats!
