If you read my journal you may know I’m going through some dietary changes as I figure out what my food sensitivities are. It’s really throwing¬†me for a loop as it seems some of my favorite healthy vegetables may be causing my¬†stomach distress, which is causing me¬†cooking distress!
When I¬†look in the¬†pantry or fridge, all I see are foods I should be staying away from at the moment. It’s depressing.
So yesterday I decided to look through my IBS¬†books and focus on the foods I CAN eat. This smoothie was born. It cured my late-morning hunger and (because of the chia seeds) turned into more of a satisfying pudding!
Here’s what I did…
- 1/2 ripe banana (50g)
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries (70g)
- 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes (10g)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds (12g)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
Put everything in the blender and process until smooth.
I let mine go for a good minute and it came out amazingly thick¬†and luxurious!
I never put blueberries and coconut together before.¬†They make a yummy team!
