So the chia seed pudding at the bottom is completely optional, but it does look nicer and don’t forget, chia seeds are loaded with fibers, Omega-3 fatty acids and proteins. The blueberries give the smoothie that particular bright bluish-red colour naturally. I’ve also seen Spirulina, a blue-green algae, used in smoothies for a light blue look, but I’ve never tried it myself. How did they even turn algae into a powder? Mind blowing.
Really loved how this turned out! This was definitely a pleasant change from my usual avocado and banana smoothies in the morning.
On another note, I’ve been trying to find a project for my Projet Personnel (a very important project!) I’ll have to do next year in school but I keep changing ideas because I keep thinking it’s not good. I went from cookbook to app to dreams to food waste and I’m just really confused on what I should do. Hopefully (crossing my fingers), I’ll be able to find a good project soon.
