ASAP Smoothie Base
I discovered this by accident. I made a smoothie and left it for a few minutes and it jelled and turned fairly solid (kind of like a chia pudding). Rather then tossing it, I kept it in the fridge and the next day added some of it to my blender with some additional water and greens, Vita Mixed it for a few seconds and viola! A 1 minute smoothie!
Pretty pink color too (BTW, berry measurements are approx.)
2 tablespoon coconut butter
2 cup water
½ papaya, seeded and skinned
½ cup blueberries
sweetner to taste
maple extract, vanilla, etc. to taste, (optional)
greens (you choose)
First, blend/Vita Mix water and coconut butter for 1 minute. Then add everything except the greens. Essentially, you will have a yummy pudding at this point (which you can eat as is).
If you don’t eat it, you can just store it in your fridge…and when you need a smoothie ASAP, just spoon a few TBSP of this stuff into your blender along with a bunch of your fav greens and some water.
I used arugula and baby greens and it was gooood!
