This blueberry pie smoothie is like having a slice of your favorite summer dessert without the guilt. It's vibrant color is a sweet way to brighten your mornings!
Violet! You're turning violet, Violet!
That definitely in my top 5 favorite lines from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. It's fitting right now, isn't it? We actually call this the Beauregard Smoothie in my house because of how vibrantly violet it is. I think it's one of my favorite smoothies for the color alone. Of course, that isn't to say it isn't one of the best tasting smoothies I've made (but let's be honest, it's very hard to beat my avocado chocolate peanut butter smoothie) because oh my gosh I am in love with the way this blueberry pie smoothie tastes. I mean, hello, it tastes like a blueberry freaking pie!!!
Just like a lot of my smoothies, it's made to taste like it is decadent without actually being very high in calories. The worst of it is the granola which you can skip, but you will miss out on the full pie effect. But think about it, it's only 1 tablespoon of granola per serving and you are already probably going to end up having some granola later in the day anyway, ammiright?
My favorite addition to basically every smoothie I make is almond milk. I love the creaminess it adds to everything. If it isn't obvious, Almond Breeze is my favorite brand of almond milk to use. They are the official sponsor of Team USA Volleyball. I like to think the team would appreciate having a smoothie like this in the morning!
