This Blueberry Banana Coconut Smoothie is a great easy breakfast or snack. Coconut milk, bananas, blueberries, almond butter and yogurt blend together to make a flavor and protein packed smoothie!
Oh hey everyone. I know it’s Wednesday but I’m still recovering from the weekend, anyone else? If you follow me on Instagram you know that Mr. Briar and I had an action packed three day weekend in San Francisco. It was fantastic and we ate and drank SO MUCH. Although I wish I could eat like that every day, sadly the scale told me “Yeah, no.” So I’m planning on lots of healthy but still delicious meals this week, like the Sausage and Cabbage Skillet I just shared or this Blueberry Banana Coconut Smoothie.
Honestly, as soon as I made my Toasted Coconut Almond Butter, I wanted to put it in a smoothie. That stuff was made for smoothies. I started dreaming up a coconutty smoothie, and blueberries came to mind. So this Blueberry Banana Coconut Smoothie was born. I added a banana because bananas always make a great base for smoothies, as they add sweetness and a creamy consistency.
This smoothie is not as sweet as some of my others, so if you really want it sweeter you can add more fruit, or even some maple syrup or honey. And if you don’t have any Toasted Coconut Almond Butter on hand, I think regular almond butter would work fine too. Here is to weekend recovery – and to next weekend!
Blueberry Banana Coconut Smoothie
- 1 banana
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup coconut milk beverage
- 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons Toasted Coconut Almond Butter or you can use regular almond butter
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. If you are having a hard time blending or getting a smooth enough consistency, add a little more coconut milk or water. Serve immediately.
Delicious!!! So fresh and tasty! Thank you for the idea!
Do use of the almond butter is what makes this a very nice tasting smoothie. I also like the fact that it simply doesn’t need sweetener it stands on its own.
So glad you love it!

Where did you get the cute straws??
Hi LaDonne, I think I got those at Target! It was quite awhile ago though.

whoop according to what i see i think its more sweeter than the way it look like i may need too
Hi kiguli, it isn’t very sweet, so if you want it sweeter you might want to add a little bit of maple syrup!
This looks yummy! Did you use sweetened or unsweetened coconut milk? ANd Full fat or reduced fat? Thanks!
Hi Kelly – I used unsweetened coconut milk – the kind in the carton, not the kind in the can. It is sold where the almond and soy milk cartons are at the grocery store. It was full fat 🙂
The coconut milk in the ingredients list links to the canned, creamy kind. Which is pretty confusing since your comment sounds like you used coconut milk beverage (as a milk substitute). Help!
Hi Anna, sorry for the confusion! It is not that canned kind, it should be the kind in the carton.
