How To Make Blueberry Chia Smoothie, A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie?
Vegan.Gluten Free.Nut Free Blueberry Chia Smoothie.
Blueberry Chia Smoothie is a simple and healthy breakfast smoothie. It can be made the night before and enjoyed the next morning. This smoothie happened on a whim. I was prepping a salad for Mr.P s lunch box and was left with a few blueberries and couple of strawberries. I instantly thought of making a smoothie for my breakfast the next morning. I decided on adding chia in order to give it some texture and nutrient oomph. This smoothie is the first in terms of using almond milk. I bought Almond Breeze recently and tried it as it is. Let’s just say i did not take to the taste instantly. So i thought of masking its flavor by adding it to a smoothie in place of regular dairy product. And ever since then, i have been using only Almond milk in place of regular milk in all my smoothies. You can use regular milk in place of almond milk in this blueberry chia smoothie too. The taste will be different but good. I have tried both versions of this blueberry chia smoothie, with regular milk and almond milk. And my favorite will always be the blueberry chia smoothie with almond milk. Guess you have a convert here. 😎
