This blueberry and peanut butter whey smoothie was one of my go to breakfast smoothies and pre-workout smoothies for many months.
I actually loved the taste so much that I had it very, very often which led to me getting burnt out on this amazing recipe. I have it every once in a while now, but I'm the type of person that doesn't like the same foods over and over. I still love it, though. I just cut back on how many times I was having.
This should tell you how great this tastes as I had it every week for many months at a time.
This healthy smoothie recipe is absolutely amazing and provides a huge number of antioxidants from the blueberries as well as many other nutrients from the other ingredients.

Other Options for the Blueberry and Peanut Butter Whey Smoothie
As with any smoothie recipe, you can add so many different ingredients and “hide” them within the smoothie.
For example, you can add some spinach to the recipe and you wouldn't even notice unless you added a huge amount. You could hide kale within this smoothie recipe.
I highly recommend experimentation with this healthy smoothie recipe. Any time you can add leafy green veggies like spinach or kale, I would do so. If you think about it when making this smoothie, grab a few leaves of spinach and kale and throw them in the blender with the other ingredients.
I also highly recommend additional herbs and spices.
For example, I throw hot pepper flakes into many of my smoothies for the additional health benefits. Choose some different herbs and spices and throw them in when you make this recipe each time. You might find something that tastes even better.
