- ½ cup water
- ½ cup coconut milk
- ½ cup frozen berries
- 1 banana
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
For best results, we recommend using:
- Pour water and coconut milk into a blender cup; layer berries, banana, and chia seeds, respectively, into the liquid.
- Blend mixture on High using an immersion blender fitted with the blade attachment, moving blender up and down to evenly mix, until smooth, 30 to 45 seconds; add water as needed if too thick. Alternately, pour ingredients into a standard blender and blend until smooth.
Chia seeds are not just something to grow chia pets. They have become a popular addition to smoothies for their tendency to expand in liquid and help give that "full" filling you want from a quick and easy meal-replacement drink. Before bananas get too brown on the counter, peel and cut them for freezing for easy use in smoothies. Frozen bananas add even more texture to your smoothie for a creamier beverage.
