Blueberry banana smoothies

Sunday, April 17, 2016


Last time I posted a smoothie recipe, it was when my youngest daughter got braces.

Apparently dental issues are a harbinger of smoothie recipes on this blog, because the same girl had a wisdom tooth out on Friday. Since then I haven't made anything that didn't go through a blender, including this smoothie that's bursting with the taste of blueberries. I made a noticeable dent in the number of blueberries in my freezer, since this was one of the few things she wanted to eat after her surgery.

For the record, the surgery went well, and she's already back at school to write her final three exams. It's hard to know which she thought was the worst thing about the last few days: the removal of the wisdom tooth, the fact that it was bookended by exams, or the two losses by her beloved Blue Jays to the Red Sox. Fortunately, the mouth is healing, the schoolwork is coming along nicely, and the Jays won this afternoon.

Three great reasons to celebrate with another smoothie!

I hope your daughter is feeling all better soon! I love a good smoothie, but I never make them with blueberries anymore because I have had a few seize up on me due to the pectin.

Oh I totally sympathize! I had my wisdom tooth removed many, many years ago because it was coming up horizontically instead of vertically! Five stitches and five days with soups and milk! I wish I had this smoothie back then!

Happy your daughter is feeling better now--can't imagine doing this during the semester. It can be a lot of work for Mom too blending all that food ;-). Glad we wrapped that up in our house over winter break!

Hard to get too excited by wins or loses this early in the baseball season. Or so I always tell myself. :-) Anyway, super looking smoothie! Getting wisdom teeth out is o fun. And during exams? Injustice!

A perfect way to recover from dental surgery! Blueberries are the best in smoothies.

I love smoothies but often forget about them! Boo - this one looks great. I usually freeze bananas too and skip the ice cubes - love the blue blueberries!
