Have you tried Chia seeds? Do you know what they are? Chia seeds are so good for you! My friend Augusta has encouraged me to try them for ages now. Even knowing how beneficial they are, I’ve had these sitting patiently in my cabinet for over a month.
I had no idea what to expect, but it was a pleasant surprise. They did change the texture of the smoothie a bit. It was a bit thicker, but that was the only real difference I noticed.
My boys and I really enjoyed these smoothies. I will be including chia seeds in our future smoothies. I am so glad that I finally tried them. Chia seeds are great but toss in some carrot tops for a Blueberry Carrot Top Smoothie.
Blueberry Strawberry Smoothie with Chia Seeds
- 2 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 10-12 medium strawberries frozen
- 1/2 cup blueberries frozen
- 1-2 tablespoons honey
- Layer the above ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.

Miles and I were talking about these just before campout. You can also sprout the seeds to cook with. Haven't bought any yet but plan on trying them. I am trying to find out their shelf life since the bucket store has a 5 or 10 lb bag for a good price.

Here is what I found regarding the shelf life:
Shelf life of the dry seeds is 3-5 yrs (needs cool and dark for the full 5 yr) the powder only has a 2 yr shelf life.
Hope that helps!
