Blueberry Pie Smoothie

This blueberry pie smoothie is rich, decadent, and tastes like a blended piece of blueberry pie a-la-mode. This recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly, and is seriously delicious.

Just like the other pie smoothies on the site, I’m using raw unsalted cashews to replicate the buttery pastry flavor of a fabulous blueberry pie crust.

In some pie smoothies I also use rolled oats. I didn’t add them to this recipe because I wanted to make this recipe paleo-friendly. Blueberries also have a natural gelatinous quality and so do rolled oats. So, when you combine them in a smoothie it can get very sludgy very quickly when left to sit. This smoothie will still get firm when left to sit. So, blend and devour.

This blueberry smoothie is all about the fun.

Well, this blueberry pie smoothie does contain antioxidants. Yes….blueberries are loaded with anti-aging goodies…

Yeah, tell yourself that as you blend up another and another and another batch of this blueberry pie smoothie. It is so delicious.

Liquid pie where you don’t have to bake to get your fix. What’s not to love?

*Probiotic Powder – I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.

*Celtic Sea Salt – I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.

  1. Since this is an older post, I don’t know if you’ll even see this, but I wanted to let you know I was skeptical about this recipe. I made it, took a sip, thought ‘hmm not bad’ then next thing I knew was running my fingers around the empty glass and licking them off! LOL Oink! Oink!

    1. LOL! Christine, I laughed so hard when I read your comment. Yes, this smoothie creeps up on you! I see all comments no matter how old the post is, and respond to all of them, so please feel free to leave your feedback on any of them and I will get back to you. Oink 🙂

  2. I got a 32 oz smoothie out this recipe..but I’m not complaining!! Another round and I had four child size smoothies for a quick afternoon snack for my crew…2, 5, 7, and 8. They loved it. I just found your site today while trying to figure out something different to do with blueberries. Thank you. I’ll be back!
