Blueberry Banana Smoothie for Secret Recipe Club

blueberry banana apple smoothie

This is my first time participating in the Secret Recipe Club where each month you are assigned a food blog and on the selected day you are to post a recipe from that food blogger. This month’s I was assigned Lynn’s blog from Cafe Lynnylu. She’s had the blogging running since 2005 (wow) and aside from numerous recipes also features beautiful photographs.

I bookmarked a lot of recipe from her site but ending up selecting this one for the SRC. I don’t make smoothies nearly as often as D would like so I knew he would definitely appreciate a Sunday afternoon fruity drink. A fair reward for his Whole Foods outing to do the grocery shopping for the week.

Most of the ingredients in this smoothie are pretty standard; Greek yogurt, blueberries, bananas, but what really intrigued me was the addition of apple juice. Not a regular in the smoothie world, the apple juice really did provide a subtle hint of appley goodness. Luckily I had some fresh apples laying around so I just made fresh squeezed juice to add to the smoothie. Not sure how this would work with bottled juice but it’s definitely a welcome addition when it’s freshly made.

Overall a delicious summer drink and a great recipe to celebrate my first Secret Recipe Club post.

    Welcome to SRC! Great choice-my husband loves smoothies and would enjoy this one.

    We love adding apple juice to our fruit smoothies here as it is great for my dairy-allergy kiddos! We use soy yogurt instead of the greek yogurt and it’s always a hit!

    • Vicky says

      Ooo I’ll have to try adding soy yogurt to make this vegan next time. Where do you buy soy yogurt? Do they sell it everywhere? Not sure that I’ve seen it…

    Can never get enough smoothies especially is this hot weather. Looks really good. Welcome to SRC. I’m looking forward to reading your recipes on your blog.

    • Vicky says

      Thanks! Definitely excited to finally be off the wait list for SRC – it’s always fun to cook recipes from other blogs!

  4. Dan says

    The smoothie looks absolutely delicious. I think that the secret ingredient for SRC this month is Greek yogurt.

    For summer smoothies I keep my fruits in the freezer. I end up with a thick milkshake consistency. I also have one of those little ice cream freezers you put the base in the freezer and take it out when you want to make frozen anything. I could take a recipe like this, double or triple it and turn it into frozen yogurt…. oh yum, low cal, no guilt, keep cool. *contented sigh*

    • Vicky says

      Great idea to keep the fruits in the freezer to give the smoothies a thicker milkshake consistency! I’ll have to try that next time! And yes this probably would make a killer fro yo too!

    Hi Vicky,
    How cool you got my blog! Your smoothie looks amazing, especially the freshly squeezed apple juice! Welcome to SRC! Thanks for the lovely words.
    Cheers, Lynne

    • Vicky says

      Thanks Lynne, I fully enjoyed checking out your blog this month and have bookmarked a handful of recipes from there to try — I want to make your blackberry frozen yogurt tonight (subbing in blueberries instead)!

    These photos look beautiful! I think this will probably be my brekky tomorrow (I might throw in some chia seeds or LSA as well for protein…we’ll see!). Sounds delicious though! – Niki x

    • Vicky says

      Thanks! Hope you enjoyed the recipe if you ended up making it! I’ve never used chia seeds before but have been hearing a lot about them!
