Banana Wild Blueberry Smoothie With Chia Seeds

Because I use frozen organic wild blueberries for this, I don’t need to add any ice cubes. You’ll need to soak the chia seeds for several hours or overnight.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon soaked chia seeds (1 teaspoon dry unsoaked)
  • 1 small banana (about 4 ounces without the skin)
  • ½ cup frozen organic wild blueberries
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Nutritional Information

Preparation

  1. To soak the chia seeds, place in a jar or bowl and add 4 tablespoons water for every tablespoon of chia seeds. Place in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. The seeds and water will be become gelatinous.
  2. Scoop up a tablespoon of seeds with the gooey liquid and place in a blender (don’t worry, your smoothie won’t have this consistency). Add the remaining ingredients and blend for 1 full minute at high speed.
