Paleo Blueberry Banana Chia Smoothie (Vegan, Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy-Free, 4 Ingredient)

Paleo Blueberry Banana Chia Smoothie (V, GF, Paleo): a 4-ingredient recipe for antioxidant-rich and refreshing blueberry banana chia smoothies. Vegan, Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy-Free.

Happy March! Can you believe it’s March already? Not to rush things or anything, but something about this month gets me super excited for the summer. Ahem, I mean spring… 😉 Okay, fine, I mean summer! I’ve been testing out summer recipes for quite a while now. Don’t make fun of me, but I totally started working on my summer recipes back in December. 😉

It’s just, during that time, it was candy-making all day, every day. I thought that whipping up some smoothies, nice cream, and even more nice cream would help balance out the candy factory my kitchen had become.

Plus, something about making and eating nice cream in the winter gives me a sense of delightful rebellion (and hope for the summer to come, like quick). 😉

Anywho, before I start sharing all of the chocolate-amazing recipes I have in store for you this month, I thought it would be a refreshing change of pace to enjoy some beautiful blueberries, sweetly versatile bananas, and of course, the healthy-powerhouse that is chia seeds. You game?

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve shared a blueberry recipe on the blog. Have you missed the little blue powerballs of antioxidant YUM? Or are you more of a fan of raspberries, blackberries, or even… dare I say it?? Oranges??? Like, woah. What do oranges have anything to do with blueberries?

Alright, fine, I admit it… I’ve got summer chillaxing vibes on the brain. As such, I’m a tad bit rambly and dreamy today. Nothing wrong with that, right? Especially when you have this frosty, refreshing and amazingly feel-good smoothie in hand. And just in case you’ve been daydreaming about berry smoothies all along, you’ve got to check out this Dairy Free Berry Smoothie from A Mind-Full Mom! It’s refreshing, paleo and vegan (score!!). Anywho, what was I saying? Right…

So the funny thing is, the other day, my sister Monica texts me and says that she just tried one of my recipes and loved it. Any guesses as to which one it was?

Times up! It was my blueberry coconut smoothie bowl.

Okay, you might be sitting there thinking, what’s the big deal with that? That’s an everyday occurrence, or at least a fairly regular occurrence right? Nope! My sisters rarely try out my recipes (don’t judge them—I’ll do that for you). 😉 So when one happens to try one and totally love it, I’ve got to drop everything and make sure I’ve got a similar one coming down the pipeline for her to enjoy!

Yeah, I’m cool like that. 😉 So Monstee, here ya go: may I present to you my Paleo Blueberry Banana Chia Smoothie. I know you love blueberries, bananas and chia seeds together, so here’s one that’s sure to satisfy ya, Sis! Also, dear reader, make sure to totally rib any of my three sisters for not trying my recipes more often when you meet them in person. It’s your sworn duty as my friend. Riiiiiiiight?

While you plot and plan this most satisfying ribbing, allow me to tell you all about this Paleo Blueberry Banana Chia Smoothie. It’s:

  • made with just 4 ingredients
  • packed with antioxidants
  • sweetened only with fruit
  • vegan, gluten free, dairy-free and paleo
  • refreshing, cool and satisfying
  • bursting with chia seed goodness
  • packed with blueberries and coconut YUM
  • super easy to make
  • perfect for a snack or dessert
  • capable of giving you all the summer vibes
  • may or may not be made by one of my sisters (maybe even soon…) 😉

Grab four simple ingredients, dust off that blender and join me in the kitchen. Are you ready to do this? I’m so happy to be blending, no-baking, and maybe even doing some future baking with you. Be sure to let me know what kind of recipes you want to see on the blog. In the mean time, tell me…

What recipes do you want me to make for the summer?

Sending you all my love and maybe even a dove, xo Demeter ❤️

    1. Hi Temi! No need to do anything special with the chia seeds here. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Oooh this is so pretty! Demeter – honestly, I am looking forward to whatever comes out of your kitchen and whatever you pen – but I do say, your comment about “chocolate-amazing recipes” has me quite curious! You see, I adore chocolate everything and now am all impatient! At least I have this GORGEOUSLY hued blueberry smoothie to keep me distracted!

    1. Thanks so much, Shashi! Hehe. You’ll see in today’s post and onward… 😉 Hope you get to try this and just love it! xo

  2. Oh gosh – I have a sore throat right this minute with my second cold in two months, and that smoothie looks like it would be so cool and comforting. Can you come over right now and make me one? xoxo

    1. Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear that you’re not feeling well. I hope you get well soon! I’m on my way! xoxo 😉

  3. Waaaaait wait wait WAIT! You can not be all dreamy over summer yet, and try to bypass Spring! Because spring is my favorite season and as my bestie you must relish in it WITH ME. I mean, I fully supported your love of halloween, so you have to give me spring… mmmmkay? 🙂 And ummm I will TOTALLY be giving your sisters (err my soon to be sisters?) a hard time for not making your recipes that often.. or at all. Don’t they know what they are missing???!! I mean, all the no bake goodness and all the stellar smoothies!!!! Such a shame. I will just have to make and eat it all for them. 😉 This blueberry ‘naner smoothie is GORGEOUS, lil D! Love the addition of chia seeds!! Gimme all the nutritional deliciousness! Pinned of course! Mwah! Cheers!

    1. Haha. When I learned that Spring was your fave, I was like… oops! Haha. Now I have to go back and edit my post! Lol. If I could, I would give you spring all year long, Chey. <3. LOL. Yes, THAT'S how you'll win over your new sisters! . Let's make everything together and eat it all! Thanks my dear. Cheers! xo

  4. I can’t believe that it’s already March! Time sure has flown by, which I’m thankful for because I kinda dislike January and February because of the cold temps. This smoothie is JUST what I need to remind me that spring is on the way. I’m in love with that gorgeous color, Demeter! And the flavor, which chia seeds…perfection! Wishing I had a big glass of this right now. Pinned! Have a great weekend!

    1. Seriously! It has gone so ridiculously fast! And I totally agree with you on not minding at all… who really wants to prolong these super chilly months, anyway? Thanks so much, Gayle! Happy weekend! 🙂

  5. ooooh you should’ve seen my face light up when I got a glimpse of all the purple going on here!! I have missed bluebs and purple posts and smoothies and summer and…wow that list got longer than I was expecting.? If you can’t tell I’m a little (REALLY) excited about all these summer recipes you’ve been testing! Since december though, wow! That is some serious forethought. Blueberry smoothies/nicecream are my go to berry flavor. And made extra thick (and gets thicker as you sip–love that) with the chia, plus extra frosty with the banana…this could be my 2017 Beverage of the Summer. Yes that is a thing. Yes I did just invent it. But I’m pretty sure this is going to be it.. But dang it if beverages don’t ship well! Guess I’ll have to whip this up all on my own over here. xoxo

    1. You’ve GOT to keep going on with that list–I love everything you’ve got on it so far. 🙂 LOL on December. What can I say–it helps me deal with the wintry dreariness here! Okay, now this HAS to be your 2017 Beverage of the Summer. There’s just no argument about it now. 😉 Whip it up and let me know what you think! xoxo

    1. Thank you Marsha! I can’t lie–that totally factored into this recipe. Lol. Go blueberries! xo

  6. Great recipes! I am new to your website as I was searching for low carb recipes. I am diabetic and looking for smart choices. Do you shop local for your ingredients or online? Can you recommend an online store to use for the ingredients?

    1. Thank you, Eyvette! What a pretty and unique name, btw. 🙂 I buy my “supplies” everywhere! I do shop local, but for the things I can’t find near me, I shop online. I’ve found some really good deals on Amazon and on Jet sells a lot of high-quality, organic bulk products for excellent prices. Let me know if you need help finding specific recipes. 🙂
