My youngest son LOVES blueberries.

And chia is a nutritional powerhouse that we have somewhat recently added to our pantry.

So you can imagine my excitement when I could add these two together and come up with a refreshing no-bake dessert that is:

  • a breeze to make,
  • a treat to eat and
  • good for you to boot.

Nutritional Benefits of Chia

Just 2 tablespoons of chia has:

  • 4 grams of complete protein
  • 4.5 grams of omega 3 oils
  • 5.5 grams fiber
  • 9% RDA calcium
  • 7% RDA iron

I got the inspiration for this recipe from Ricki’s Strawberry Fluff from Diet Dessert N Dogs.  (Since I unfortunately became personally acquainted with candida, she has been an inspiration for a lot of my kitchen adventures.)  Well, the first batch was gone-zo in about 5 minutes flat.  So I went back to the blender to make some more :-)!

Here’s how you can have some of this silky smooth freshness this spring or summer.

    I really want to buy a Vitmix I just don’t know which one to get. What is your recomendation.

    • Hi Victoria. I have the 5200 but I am intrigued w/ their new model. I haven’t had a chance to try it, however. I would lean towards the 5200 now since it has a bigger container. You could call Sue at 1 800 848 2649 ext 2308. She is very knowledgable and helpful. If you happen to buy one I would so appreciate your using my referral code CODE 06-005927 and you get free shipping that way as well. Thanks – you will love it!

    Thanks Adrienne I will give them a call.

    Made it this morning for breakfast, it was yummy!

  4. I tried making this one time and all seemed to go according to plan, but when I took it out of the freezer, less than an hour later it was 95% liquid! I don’t know what I did wrong…too much milk? I followed the directions…although I didn’t have Chia seeds at the time… Does that thicken it up a lot?

    how far in advance can this recipe be made?

  6. Hi there, Want to try your mousse but I’m confused about the sweetener. Are you saying you only use
    1/4 tsp of stevia or up to 1 cup of say honey, maple syrup or plain sugar? I know stevia is sweet but I
    didn’t think there was that much of a difference!!
    Please let me know.
    Thanks so much!!

  7. Do you grind the chia seeds alone – before you mix everything? I have an old Vitamix and I do have a dry container I thought could be used for that purpose.
