Iced Blueberry Coconut Smoothie
Prep time 0; Total time to make: 1 min
It’s 10am am in the morning. The sun is shining meltingly hot through my window. 25 degrees Celsius the thermometer says.
In the office?! Really? You must know that this is an old Victorian house with huge ceilings and big walls, that is always freezing.
Well, I can’t take this heat. I need something to cool me down.
- 4 Ice Cubes
- Handful of frozen blueberries
- Handful frozen pear pieces
- Half a chilled cucumber
- Small glass of rice milk
- ½ can of chilled coconut milk
- 1 Tbsp golden flax seeds
Simply put all the frozen ingredients into your blender and cover them with the rice milk and coconut milk.
Then sprinkle with the flax seeds, and blend on high until completely smooth and creamy.
Because it has been so hot here lately I have got into the habit of making ice cold smoothies twice a day practically. It’s the only way I can handle it ????
Well, there go my best intentions of reducing my fruit consumption down. But at least I always endeavour to add only the bare minimum of fruit.
Since my last blueberry smoothie (which was more lemony-yogurty-spinachy than this one) – I have tried a few blueberry variations.
This one is definitely the simplest one of them all though – positively no chopping involved. Bonus!
And since this smoothie has only a very small amount of fruit, it has a refreshingly sour edge. Not too much because of the pear and the rice milk. But still enough to be pleasant.
So here we go. This is my latest blueberry smoothie creation:
Sporting mostly frozen ingredients to give it an extra chilled taste sensation.
Richly refreshing, like an ice cream milkshake really, hahhhhhh (*sigh*)
I hope you have a freezer and a blender nearby so you can straight away dive into smoothie making mode with me.
Note for Candida Sufferers:
Blueberries are naturally low in sugar, which makes them the perfect fruit for candida sufferers who are slowly transitioning back to normal eating. As far as fruit smoothies go this one really isn’t sweet at all. So it’s not likely to cause you a flare up.
But I wouldn’t want to risk it if you’re still in the initial stages of the diet. In that case I would leave the fruit out and experiment with using a whole chilled cucumber instead. It might just work. And it would still be remarkably refreshing.
