Blueberry and Banana Buttermilk Smoothie recipe. A recipe for a Blueberry and Banana Buttermilk Smoothie. I am really excited for the new Wes Anderson movie. People I have mentioned this to, in general, seem far less enthused than me. I don’t get it. The cinematography, the set designs, the costumes. It all fits together so perfectly. I can’t wait. There is this very very short clip in the trailer where two kids are dancing to music. For some reason, that clip is so perfect to me, I just can’t stop thinking about it. If you have not seen the trailer yet, you can see it here.

It’s smoothie time. Smoothies are kind of this awesome thing I forget about because my blender sucked so I gave it away. Frozen fruit is the whole reason smoothies are great. You can make a smoothie from stuff in your freezer. Its so easy and awesome! This Blueberry & Banana Buttermilk Smoothie has a bit of cinnamon in it, which really changes things up. I would love to know if you all make smoothies on the regular, and if so, what are your fav flavor combos.

    Oh man, these sound really good. I’m all about smoothies and trying out new ones. Done!

    This smoothie is the prettiest! I’d like to wear tights the exact color of it. One of my favorite smoothies is of the banana, honey, and cinnamon variety. It’s tasty despite being khaki.

    AND I’m super excited for the new Wes Anderson movie! I just want a red dress like the little lady wears.

    This looks awesome! Will definitely try this combo soon.

    Tip: you should totally start freezing your bananas. Once blended, the frozen bananas give the smoothie more of an ice cream-like texture so it thickens up without needing any extra ice. Now I buy bananas, let them sit a few days, then peel them and put them whole into a big ziploc freezer bag. Frozen bananas are a smoothie game-changer!

    My two favorite smoothies are:

    -Chocolate/Berry Smoothie: Frozen banana, frozen strawberries or cherries, handful or two of spinach (you really won’t taste it), about a tbsp. of cocoa powder, a scoop or two of vanilla protein powder, and milk (smoothie also tastes good with apple juice instead of milk, although it’s less creamy)

    -Mocha-Peanut Butter Smoothie (I have this as dessert a lot): frozen banana, few tbsp. peanut butter, about a tbsp. of cocoa powder, iced coffee, milk

    These look great! I never thought of using buttermilk in a smoothie…not sure why, I love buttermilk. We make smoothies regularly in our house – favourite flavour combo would be vanilla yogurt, a splash of milk, frozen raspberries, wheat germ, and a dollop of peanut butter – tastes like PB&J in a glass!

    I love a good smoothie. This looks great! I almost always use a frozen banana because it adds a creaminess you can’t beat. Peanut butter, banana, and fig is good. A new favorite is toasted walnut and banana. That one has cinnamon in it, too. Recipe is here if you’re interested: http://alittlesaffron.com/2012/04/06/toasted-walnut-banana-smoothie/

    That. Movie. Looks. Incredible.

    Thanks for posting about it.

    I’m as stoked as you now.

    I heart this post for the mention of the Wes Anderson movie. I happily take myself as a date to a movie if no one else will go. And I throw spinach in my smoothies to ward off people in my house who don’t believe greens + fruit should mix ;)

    Pure bliss!

    I think this blog post is about me!! Sure, I’ll watch it, whatever. Not excited about it tho. He’s like the Death Cab for Cutie of film directors. He gets a gigantic ‘meh’ from me. :)

    I made a strawberry banana mango smoothie with plain yogurt and vanilla recently. Soooo goood.

  11. Nisha Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi. Stumbled upon your blog. Your food styling and photography is amazing.

    I usually make simple one-fruit smoothies or fresh mixed fruit-vegetable juices. This combination sounds interesting. And yay, I do have one frozen banana sitting in there since a week!

  12. Lea @ iCooklea Not Specified Not Specified

    Love smoothies, I make them with my sister, this one is our next try!

  13. Miranda Not Specified Not Specified

    So this may seem like a bratty question but if you gave your blender away, how did you blend these? The whole reason I ask is because my blender also sucked….but I didn’t give it away, it flat out died on me! So I am blenderless at the moment, so I’m open to suggestions because these look awesome and I want to try them. Thanks!

      Hi Miranda! We did use a blender for this. I take care of the recipe portion of the blog and used my blender at home to test this and there’s a blender at Teri’s studio. Other than blending, I’m not sure how you’d make a smoothie!

  14. Justinn Not Specified Not Specified

    This smoothie looks great!

    I’m an avid smoothie maker, my favorite smoothie is comprised of: one frozen banana, 1/2 c. greek yogurt, 1/4 c -1/2 c of almond milk or plan kefir, 1-2 tbsp of local honey, splash of apple juice, and lots of fresh spinach.

  15. Billy Not Specified Not Specified

    I kind of freaked out a little too much when I saw the trailer. I mean, what the hell? it’s Wes Andersen, he can do no wrong in my book.

    As for the smoothie I am completely fine with bananas and a healthy (read: not healthy) amount of nutella or peanut butter.

    Also your photos make me want to throw something across the room. In a good way.

  16. Claire Not Specified Not Specified

    Awesome post, can’t wait to try the smoothies nor see the new movie- toooooo exciting! Smoothies have become a family tradition for us. My Dad gets up every morning and makes large amounts of smoothie for everyone to have as they get up. So delicious and nutritious, one of my favourite things about going home :) He always uses frozen fruit and chops and adds seasonal fresh fruit. It’s getting close to kiwifruit season here, so I’m looking forward to green tinted smoothies soon!

    @Miranda- I use a stick blender to make smoothies. A good quality, sturdy one is often much more affordable than a good blender. Hope this helps!

    • Miranda Not Specified Not Specified

      Thank you….I will look into stick blenders. I’ve never heard of them before, but am always open to new kitchen gadgets! :D

    I just made this, with maple syrup because I had no agave. It’s amazing and will be, I know, addictive. What a wonderfully cooling treat it will be at the end of a hot day. Thanks!

  18. Sara Grace Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh.My.Goodness. this looks amazing!!!

  19. Rachel Not Specified Not Specified

    thank you so much for sharing the movie clip! Holy crap I must see it! this smoothie sounds delicious as well :)

  20. Rachel Cooks (formerly Not Rachael Ray) Not Specified Not Specified

    I love smoothies–and this one is so beautiful!

  21. Sally @ Spontaneous Hausfrau Not Specified Not Specified

    The buttermilk in this looks particularly interesting. Whenever I buy buttermilk for a recipe, I always end up staring at the 2/3 left in the jar, wondering what the heck to do with it. So, now I know!

  22. Emily (New York, NY) Not Specified Not Specified

    Ohh a pretty smoothie! I used to love making smoothies during the summer and lay out side and drink them but last year I didn’t have a blender so that idea was kaput. But now I do so I have already started a whole list of smoothies I want to try! This shall go onthat list :)

  23. Sarah R Not Specified Not Specified

    Ooh, thanks for the heads up on the movie! I heart Wes Anderson movies and I adore Bill Murray. Yes please! I make a similar smoothie on the regular with tofu instead of buttermilk, but buttermilk would be good too. Breakfast in a glass!

  24. Anna @ the shady pine Not Specified Not Specified

    That is just the prettiest colour EVER! The butter milk sounds like a nice addition to this smoothie too.

    Glad you are excited about the movie! Part of it was filmed right in our neighborhood in Newport, RI. We got to see and meet just about everyone – it was so much fun. Can’t wait to see the finished product. And, smoothie looks great!!
