fabulous chia smoothie
it's lovely being home for a bit
enjoying this glorious summer of much content[ment]*
i am rebuilding my relationship with the whizzBizzer
[NO this is not a personal titillation device, it is the name i give to the thing in which solids are placed and then liquified/made fluffy]
and back to having my standard summer breakfast : a smoothie
the smoothie has as many variations as there are plant-dye possibilities
so is the perfect breakfast for a Sagittarian
this morning i experimented by leaving my chia seeds soaking in water
whilst i went for the early morning totter
and being organised paid off, as by the time i'd returned
the seeds and water looked like a lovely jellyish cup of frogspawn. yum.
and when i whizzed up today's ingredients :
mango, banana, yoghurt, pineapple juice, ice, honey, two big spinach leaves + grey-jelly-seeds
the mix turned into a wonderful wobbly fluffy mess that needed eating with a spoon rather than slurping from a cup. with the added bonus that the seeds didn't stick in my teeth.
next i think i will do what my gorgeous friend Claudia does
and make chia bubble tea
oh and a word of caution. yesterday i used raspberries with spinach leaves. tasted lovely but looked as though the mix had been through a cat with tummy troubles. not something you'd want to serve your beloved....
