Storage Suggestions

I would always recommend making the smoothies as fresh as possible but you can also store the leftover in the refrigerator for up to a day. Also storing them in air-tight containers helps to retain their freshness. You may see some separation in the smoothie which is perfectly normal, so swirl it with a spoon or straw before enjoying it again. And I also wouldn’t suggest storing them for more than a day.

Serving Suggestions

Serve this Blueberry Smoothie as a filling drink for breakfast that keeps you satisfied until lunch. You can also add a tablespoon of healthy peanut, almond, or cashew butter for an extra satisfying drink. This smoothie is also one of the best drinks to enjoy for snacks or when sudden hunger pangs hit you.
