After recently posting a picture of this vanilla chia seed fruit smoothie on snapchat, I got a request from a friend to put the recipe on the blog. I’m not one to enjoy all of the trendy juices or green smoothies, but prefer sticking to simple fruit based ones – especially berry flavors. Alex and I enjoy having these as a snack after work to keep us satisfied until dinner, or on a busy day when we would normally be tempted to go through a drive-through. I’ve also been trying to make a smoothie when I have a craving for ice cream on a hot day!
Here is the recipe:
– 12 frozen strawberries
– A handful of blueberries
– 16 oz. of vanilla almond milk
– Chia seeds
Layer the berries in your blender, and pour the almond milk over them. Blend until smooth, scoop into a glass, then top with chia seeds!
You can obviously experiment with different fruits. Alex likes a banana in his, and I think blackberries or raspberries would be good. If you have the molds, this recipe would make delicious popsicles as well.
