Dec. Pantry Challenge: Blueberry Smoothie

This smoothie is creamy, delicious and oh so healthy.

I used very well cooked white beans and water in place of non-dairy milk.  I like to use beans in smoothies for several reasons:

  • inexpensive
  • high in fiber
  • high in protein
  • filling
  • complex carbs 
Here's the recipe:
  • 1/2 cup well cooked white beans
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 c frozen blueberries
  • vanilla stevia to taste
  • pinch cardamom
Blend well for a couple minutes.
