blueberry peanut butter protein smoothie

If you asked me to name five ingredients I always keep on hand, Wyman’s frozen wild blueberries would make the list every time. I stir them into yogurt bowls (sometimes I microwave them first if I want more of a jammy swirl); toss them into my cereal with a sprinkle of flaky salt; and, of course, add them to my morning smoothies. They’re the reason this blueberry peanut butter protein smoothie is SO PRETTY and purple!

Regular frozen blueberries will work, of course, I just find the wild ones to have a more intense blueberry flavor (they’re often frozen at peak freshness).

why I add greek yogurt to my smoothies

I like a thick but pourable smoothie, and Greek yogurt has become my new favorite way to achieve this. I’ll still sometimes add a small handful of ice to help thicken it, but too much ice dilutes the flavors. A frozen banana also does the trick, but it’s not the best option if you don’t want banana flavor.

Plus, yogurt makes this blueberry peanut butter protein smoothie more satiating, so I’m not hungry 10 minutes later. My favorite is the Fage Total 2% plain yogurt, which is also what I use for my yogurt dough bagels.
