Paleo Blueberry Banana Chia Smoothie (V, GF, Paleo): a 4-ingredient recipe for antioxidant-rich and refreshing blueberry banana chia smoothies. Vegan, Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy-Free.
Happy March! Can you believe it’s March already? Not to rush things or anything, but something about this month gets me super excited for the summer. Ahem, I mean spring… 😉 Okay, fine, I mean summer! I’ve been testing out summer recipes for quite a while now. Don’t make fun of me, but I totally started working on my summer recipes back in December. 😉
It’s just, during that time, it was candy-making all day, every day. I thought that whipping up some smoothies, nice cream, and even more nice cream would help balance out the candy factory my kitchen had become.
Plus, something about making and eating nice cream in the winter gives me a sense of delightful rebellion (and hope for the summer to come, like quick). 😉
Anywho, before I start sharing all of the chocolate-amazing recipes I have in store for you this month, I thought it would be a refreshing change of pace to enjoy some beautiful blueberries, sweetly versatile bananas, and of course, the healthy-powerhouse that is chia seeds. You game?
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve shared a blueberry recipe on the blog. Have you missed the little blue powerballs of antioxidant YUM? Or are you more of a fan of raspberries, blackberries, or even… dare I say it?? Oranges??? Like, woah. What do oranges have anything to do with blueberries?
Alright, fine, I admit it… I’ve got summer chillaxing vibes on the brain. As such, I’m a tad bit rambly and dreamy today. Nothing wrong with that, right? Especially when you have this frosty, refreshing and amazingly feel-good smoothie in hand. And just in case you’ve been daydreaming about berry smoothies all along, you’ve got to check out this Dairy Free Berry Smoothie from A Mind-Full Mom! It’s refreshing, paleo and vegan (score!!). Anywho, what was I saying? Right…
So the funny thing is, the other day, my sister Monica texts me and says that she just tried one of my recipes and loved it. Any guesses as to which one it was?
Times up! It was my blueberry coconut smoothie bowl.
Okay, you might be sitting there thinking, what’s the big deal with that? That’s an everyday occurrence, or at least a fairly regular occurrence right? Nope! My sisters rarely try out my recipes (don’t judge them—I’ll do that for you). 😉 So when one happens to try one and totally love it, I’ve got to drop everything and make sure I’ve got a similar one coming down the pipeline for her to enjoy!
Yeah, I’m cool like that. 😉 So Monstee, here ya go: may I present to you my Paleo Blueberry Banana Chia Smoothie. I know you love blueberries, bananas and chia seeds together, so here’s one that’s sure to satisfy ya, Sis! Also, dear reader, make sure to totally rib any of my three sisters for not trying my recipes more often when you meet them in person. It’s your sworn duty as my friend. Riiiiiiiight?
