Blue Pom Chia Smoothie

from ButterYum
makes 2 servings


  • 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or thawed)
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • gelled chia seeds (recipe below)


  1. In a personal blender, combine blueberries, greek yogurt, and pomegranate juice; blend until smooth.
  2. In 2 tall glasses stir together one part blueberry mixture to one part gelled chia seeds.  

Note:  to make 1 cup of chia seed gel, combine 3 tablespoons chia seeds and 1 cup water, stir occasionally for about an hour, then store in the fridge for several hours until the seeds absorb all the water - this usually takes a few hours.   I like to make a big batch of chia seed gel each week to keep in the fridge so we can make our own smoothies and chia seed drinks (like these) whenever the mood strikes.
