Blueberry Chia Smoothie (Dairy and gluten free)

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!

Serves: 3-4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.
