  1. I love the sound of this, and it looks amazing too :D It’s great you’ve added oats to it, that way you’ll feel fuller for longer. Bet it tastes awesome with coconut milk as well, nice and smooth :) Reckon this’ll work with cherries too?
    Wishing you a lovely Wednesday m’dear ^ ^

  12. Ashley says:

    Coconut milk, blueberries and oats? Sounds like my kind of smoothie! And now you have me wanting to turn it into a milkshake … I haven’t had one in years!

  13. Ohhh my gosh. This looks AMAZING!! Bloobs are my fave <3 and coconut milk makes everything so much better!

  14. Suzanne says:

    What a great idea to use coconut milk and coconut ice cream – my husband can’t handle a lot of lactose, so that would be a great option for him for shakes and smoothies.

  15. Monet says:

    I will always choose a smoothie over a milkshake. Especially one as delightful as this! Thank you for sharing!

  16. Love this! Can’t wait to see all the milkshakes :)

  17. tahnycooks says:

    totally making this! love the cinnamon in this smoothie!

  18. I love blueberries and I can only imagine how good this must have tasted!! Pie in smoothie? I am in!

  19. My thoughts are a milkshake is a treat/dessert while a smoothie is a lunch or breakfast food. If you call a milkshake a smoothie than you can eat it anytime! Even if it’s pie!

  20. This smoothie looks so good I would happily have it instead of a milkshake! Blueberries and coconut have become my new favorite flavor combo this summer. :D

  21. JulieD says:

    I have never had blueberries and coconut together and now I have to! Looks soo good!

  22. Joanne says:

    I love how this can go either way…milk shake or smoothie. It’s like the choose your own adventure of frozen drinks!

  23. Peter says:

    Smoothies are my thing too! I love them I can have 2-3 smoothies a day. THanks for showing us this delicious smoothies Katrina :)
