Summer is here which means it’s smoothie time! Smoothies are cool and refreshing on a beautiful, hot summer’s day. This blueberry pie smoothie recipe has all the delicious flavours of blueberry pie packed into a blended drink. Plus the purple colour is beautiful.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: not only are smoothies delicious, refreshing, and filling but they are also perfect for people with physical disabilities. 

Here’s why:

  • Smoothies are a super quick and easy way to prepare a complete, filling meal (filled with protein, fruit, vegetables, fibre, and healthy fats).
  • They are high in calcium which is crucial for people with disabilities who have low bone density.
  • You can pack them with extra protein and calories if you are healing from a pressure wound.
  • They’re a great way to sneak in extra fruit and veggies.
  • They don’t take a lot of time or energy to make, which makes them a great option for days when you’re in pain or extra fatigued.
  • Smoothies are versatile – there are ENDLESS flavour combos so you can make them everyday and never get bored!
  • They’re also made with affordable ingredients (hello frozen fruit!).

How to Prep Smoothies in Advance

If mornings are tight for you and you don’t have time to make a smoothie from scratch, here’s what you can do to save time and prep all or part of it in advance:

  • Make your smoothie the night before. The ingredients may separate a bit the next morning and it won’t taste as fresh but give it a good stir and it will still taste pretty good. Store it in a flask like this one.
  • Portion out the ingredients in containers the night before so all you have to do in the morning is pour everything into the blender (this is the blender that I use – it’s a great investment!). For example, portion out the rolled oats and yogurt in separate containers (like these ones), and place 1 cup of blueberries in a freezer-friendly bag. 
  • Make a double batch of smoothie in the morning to last you for breakfast the next day.

This Blueberry Pie Smoothie is:

  • A good source of fibre (from the blueberries and oats – the Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats are perfect for this smoothie!)
  • High in protein (from the Greek yogurt)
  • A great source of calcium (from the yogurt and milk)
  • A filling breakfast or snack
  • Vegetarian
  • Easy and quick to make
  • Packed with antioxidants (from the blueberries)
  • Five ingredients

Servings 1


  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup milk of choice (can also use 1/2 cup kefir and 1/2 cup milk)
  • 2 tbsp rolled oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Handful of ice cubes (optional if you want to thicken it)


  • Place all ingredients in a blender, starting with the milk and yogurt (this prevents your blade from getting stuck).
  • Blend together until it reaches desired consistency.
  • Pour in a glass. Top with granola or cereal (optional). Drink and enjoy!



For a vegan version, use 1 scoop vegan protein powder and omit Greek yogurt. Add extra ice cubes to thicken. Feel free to throw in a handful of spinach leaves for extra vegetables.
