How to Make Blueberry Banana Smoothies at home

How to Make Blueberry Banana Smoothies at home

It is so easy and inexpensive to make your own Blueberry Banana Smoothies at home or while you are traveling.

As we are not tea and coffee drinkers, when we go out to a Café we enjoy a Fruit Smoothie! Kev usually chooses a berry flavour and Adele likes a banana smoothie.

We have simply combined each of our favourite smoothie flavours and created our new favourite – Blueberry Banana Smoothie.

Here’s How to Make Blueberry Banana Smoothies at home for a fraction of the price

For a great Fruit Smoothie, it needs to be made with fresh or frozen fruit not the flavoured syrups that Cafés use to make Milk Shakes and Thick Shakes.

Over the last few months, I have had the time to perfect the smoothies that I make for us at home for brekkie.

They have Kev’s seal of approval as the Migaloo Café in Hervey Bay had set the benchmark for us in fruit smoothies, there’s are the best we’ve found while traveling around Oz!

To preserve our fresh fruit, I cut it up into bite size pieces, place it flat in ziplock bags and pop it in the freezer.

Plus, I freeze our yoghurt in silicon ice cube containers and once frozen transfer the cubes into ziplock bags then store the yoghurt cubes in the freezer as well.

I also have a stock of frozen blueberries, mixed berries and mango in the freezer.

How to Make Blueberry Banana Smoothies at home

I have found the secret to a great smoothie is for the smoothie to be ‘icy’ cold.

By having the fruit in the freezer, I not only have a supply readily available to make smoothies but when you blend the frozen fruit and yoghurt with the cold milk and honey it blends into an icy consistency.

The other great part of making smoothies at home is you can enjoy them for a fraction of the price you’ll pay in a Cafe.

The five ingredients to make Blueberry Banana Smoothies at home:

2 cups of cold Milk

1 frozen Banana

1 frozen large ice cube of Blueberry Yoghurt

¼ cup frozen Blueberries

1 tablespoon Honey

By having a stock of the frozen fruit and frozen yoghurt, I know I am able to easily whip up a yummy icy cold Blueberry Banana Smoothie anytime, anywhere!

To make this delicious smoothie, it is super easy.

Method:

All you do is place each of the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth and icy. Then just pour the icy cold mixture into each glass.

This quantity makes 2 good sized smoothies. When traveling in the motorhome, I just use a stick blender and it does the job just as well.

Making Smoothies in the Blender at home

Cost to Make Blueberry Banana Smoothies at home

I have calculated the cost to make two deliciously icy cold Blueberry Banana Smoothies is approximately $2.40, so that’s just $1.20 per smoothie!

That is a great saving especially when traveling as you can pay 4-5 times more in a Cafe for a real fruit smoothie.

Added Extras:

Ice cream

Try adding a scoop or two of ice cream for a creamier and even icier Blueberry Banana Smoothie.

Alternate Flavoured Smoothie Suggestions:

Get creative and make up your own favourite fruit smoothie flavours!

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Strawberry Banana

Try a Strawberry Banana Smoothie – just substitute the frozen blueberries for frozen strawberries and use strawberry frozen yoghurt.

Banana Mango

Another idea is to use frozen mango with banana and a mango flavoured yoghurt. Oh, I do love Mango!

Choc Banana

Also you can leave out the frozen blueberries, substitute the blueberry yoghurt with a vanilla flavour and add a tablespoon of cocoa for a Choc Banana Smoothie! The different flavour ideas are endless!

It’s just so easy to whip up a delicious Blueberry Banana Smoothie or your favourite flavoured smoothie in a flash at home or while you are traveling.

Inskip Point Camping, Inskip Point Qld

Inskip Point Feature

One of the best things about camping at Inskip Point is the location.

You are only a 10 minute ferry ride away from stunning Fraser Island and it is just over 8 kms to beautiful Rainbow Beach which makes Inskip Point Camping very popular.

It is an ideal stopover if you are heading over or stopping off on your way back from Fraser Island as well as a great spot to just chill out while you camp beside the beach and do some fishing.

If you want an early start on the Manta Ray Fraser Island Barge, Inskip Point is the departure point and therefore the perfect place to camp overnight.

This way you can get up bright and early in the morning to catch the first barge.

About Inskip Point

Inskip Point

Inskip Point Tides

The tides are very important when visiting Inskip Point especially if you intend to head over to Fraser Island.

Driving on any beach is best at low tide or 2 hrs either side of low tide.

Click here for details on Inskip Point Tide Times.

Inskip Point Weather

As Inskip Point is right on the peninsula, it can be quite windy.

To escape the windy Inskip Point weather you may need to camp back from the beach behind the dunes or in areas of the campgrounds closer to the road.

There are a number of weather apps to check on the upcoming weather if you are planning to camp at Inskip Point with Willy Weather and BOM just to name a couple.

Inskip Point Sinkhole Warning Sign

Inskip Point Sinkhole

In late September 2015, just a few months before our stay at Inskip Point in early February 2016, a huge 150 metre x 50 metre wide, 3 metre deep sinkhole opened up at the M.V. Beagle campground.

At around 10.30pm the sinkhole slowly began opening up. Close to midnight, approximately 140 people had to be evacuated from the campground.

It resulted in a Caravan, a car, tents and camping equipment being swallowed by the sinkhole.

In March 2016, there was a second landslip. Again 3 years later in September 2018, another large portion of the beach collapsed into the ocean.

The three sinkholes have all been in the same area.

5 Essentials – 4WD Accessories

  1. 4WD Recovery Tracks will get you out of most situations, especially in sand. We bought a pair of these generic branded tracks that have worked well whilst other brands include the Australian made TRED or the Australian Designed and made MAXTRAX 4wd Recovery Tracks.
  2. For our 4WD we went with this EDECOA 1500 3000w Pure Sine Wave Inverter which has been excellent value and works great.
  3. I’m a massive fan of my Victron IP65 15a Battery Charger. I use it often to give batteries a boost and it really is an essential part of my tool kit.
  4. When camping my Kings 200w Solar Blanket gets a lot of use and works really well. Only downside is it doesn’t work with Lithium batteries.
  5. Brass Tyre Deflators are a fast and easy way to lower your tyre pressure to your desired level. Perfect for when you are hitting the beach.
Inskip Point

What else is there to do in the area?

Inskip Point Fishing

For most people, Inskip Point Camping includes spending time fishing.

With the beach and estuary right at your doorstep, it is the ideal place to catch Bream, Flathead, Tailor and Whiting.

Plus, you have Fraser Island only a 10 minute barge ride away and the fishing on Fraser is sensational.

Lake McKenzie

Visit Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world

Fraser Island is one place your absolutely cannot miss visiting!!

As it is the world’s largest sand island, the only way to access this stunning piece of paradise is by 4WD.

If you don’t have a 4WD, you can hire one or take a day tour over to Fraser Island from Rainbow Beach or there are also 2 day camping or 2 day resort tours.

There is so much to see and do on the island but Lake Mackenzie, Eli Creek, the S.S. Maheno and Champagne Pools are everyone’s favourite ‘must sees’.

For more information about Fraser Island, check out these other blogs:

Double Island Point
Double Island Point Rainbow Beach

Drive along Rainbow Beach to Double Island Point

Take a drive along the Beach past the spectacular coloured sands to Double Island Point. The colours in the sandy cliffs are amazing.

You will need to purchase a permit to drive on the beach and you definitely need to check the tide times carefully as the beach is only accessible at low tide.

Purchase your Cooloola Recreation Vehicle Access Permit online.

Check out Carlo Sand Blow

The magnificent Carlo Sand Blow is one of the popular attractions at Rainbow Beach.

Carlo Sand Blow has a ‘moonscape’ appearance and is massive with the sand covering 15 hectares. It is named after Carlo, one of Captain Cook’s crew.

Take a walk throught the rainforest to the top of the Sand Blow and take in the stunning views over Rainbow Beach including the coloured sands, Double Island Point, Inskip Point and Fraser Island.

Tin Can Bay

Feed the Dolphins at Tin Can Bay

For the best chance of feeding wild dolphins, go to the Barnacles Cafe and Dolphin Centre in Tin Can Bay.

Wild dolphins have been coming into this area for many, many years and it offers a great dolphin experience.

Volunteers provide information on the dolphins and arrange viewing times where small groups can each go into the water.

You have the not only the opportunity to see the dolphins up close but you can also feed a wild Australian Humpback Dolphin.

Don’t miss this one on one dolphin experience!

Pin – Inskip Point Camping

Rainbow Beach was our very first destination on our road trip adventure around Australia. Our second stop was Inskip Point where we camped in the M.V. Sarawak Camping Ground for one night on 4 February, 2016.

Back then, we only had our motorhome and it was the only Inskip Point Camping area we could access.

5 Essentials – Outside RV Accessories

  1. To plug your RV with standard 15amp in to standard residential 10amp power source you will need a converter. We love our waterproof Ampfibian and after over 4 years it’s still perfect.
  2. Most people carry a Generator for back up power. 4wd Supacentre has a good low cost and popular generator while the Yamaha 2000w is a robust yet quiet excellent performer.
  3. A 20m 15amp Power Lead will ensure you reach your power source in Caravan Parks and Campgrounds.
  4. You will want a good blue Drinking Water Hose. Your typical green garden hose is not suitable for drinking from.
  5. A 4 way tap handle will help you find water whenever you need it

Not only are these handy items for families travelling with kids but a number of them make great gifts for travelling families as everything you pack into your caravan or motorhome has to be practical and have maximised space efficiency.

Here is our list of 17 Handy Items for Families Travelling with Kids:
