Costco sells huge bags of frozen blueberries! We got a bag and I had to figure out how to use it! I decided on smoothies. I added chia to it for protein and as a thickener. It turned out phenomenally! I had it for dinner and breakfast and found it very filling. It is blueberry –y, fruity and perfectly smooth. Currently my favorite smoothie! Enjoy!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
|2 tablespoons||Chia seeds|
|4 ounces||Nondairy milk (I used cashew)|
|2 cups||Blueberries (fresh or thaw frozen ones)|
|1 cup||Frozen strawberries|
|1 cup||Nondairy milk (I used cashew)|
|½ cup||Applesauce (Preferably unsweetened)|
|10 each||Ice cubes|
Step 1: In a small bowl, stir together four ounces of milk and the chia seeds. Put the mixture in the refrigerator for about ten minutes, or until it is a very thick gel.
Step 2: Blend together the cup of nondairy milk, the applesauce, and the chia gel until smooth. The chia will smooth out pretty well, but don’t worry if it stays chunky.
Step 3: Add the berries and ice cubes and blend until very smooth.
