Blueberry Banana Smoothie

This mildly sweet smoothie goes down easily. The spinach flavor is totally masked by the fruits. You’d never know it was inside. And the frozen fruit and chia seeds add extra full-bodied viscosity.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 banana frozen in chunks
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 2/3 cup blueberries frozen
  • 3/4 to 1 cup cashew milk or other non-dairy milk

Instructions

  • If using a non high speed blender, grind the chia seeds in a coffee or spice grinder before using. If using a high speed blender, you can skip this step.
  • Add the chia seeds, chunks of frozen banana, baby spinach, frozen blueberries, and 3/4 cup of cashew milk to blender. Blend until smooth. This makes for a thick smoothie. If you'd like a thinner one, add the remaining 1/4 cup of cashew milk and blend.

Notes

The frozen bananas make for a creamier smoothie. So for best results, don't skip that step.
Since the frozen fruit also makes the smoothie icy, if using fresh blueberries instead of frozen, you may want to add 3-4 ice cubes to the smoothie before blending.
