Welcome to Mix-it-Up Monday! I’m honored to welcome Rachel Marie Smith of Divalicious Dishes for one of her amazing smoothie recipes. Rachel offers a classic touch to some easy, at home recipes, including appetizers, dinners & desserts. She possesses the creativity to capture a simplistic elegance in all her dishes. And she has a mixologist‘s fine hand for some incredibly enticing drinks like this one below:
Blueberry Acai Pomegranate Smoothie
1 cup of Blueberries
1 Banana, sliced
1/2 cup of low-fat Vanilla or Blueberry Yogurt
1 tablespoon of Organic Acai Powder
4-6 oz of POM juice, or POM LITE
*I added 1 tbls of Chia Seeds and 1/2 cup loosely packed spinach, optional*
Add banana, berries, and yogurt to a sandwich size ziplock bag and freeze overnight. Place frozen smoothie in the microwave for 30 seconds and press on the frozen fruit to break it up , and add to blender. Add Chia Seeds, Acai powder and POM juice, Blend and enjoy!
I know I could create a spa-like experience in my backyard with this Chia-infused smoothie* in one hand, while I soak in some sun and get some Vitamin D (with sunscreen and a hat, of course). And what’s more, this delicious beverage offers an array of antioxidants (blueberry, acai, pomegranate) and heart-healthy nutrients, including calcium, fiber and omega 3′s (chia).
Thanks Rachel for a Blueberrry-Acai-CHIA-liciuous treat. And another great way to share my Chia GIVE-AWAY!
