Blueberry Lime Coconut Smoothie (low FODMAP)

I whipped up a smoothie today with some ingredients I had on hand. Do you remember the Harry Nielsson song titled, Coconut?

“You put de lime in de coconut, you drank ’em bot’ up “ Well that is exactly what I did…BUT I added some blueberries and yogurt too! {and of course, some chia seeds}

I am somewhat pathetic when it comes to eating fruit. I try…and I do a pretty good job…but it does not come naturally.

But I do love a refreshing smoothie, do you?  I find most of my clients love smoothies too but they load them up with too many fruits–like 3-4 servings worth and the whole mixture has the calories and sugar of a hot fudge sundae!

So I made my yummy smoothie and put it in my very cute new vintage blue mason jars (Thank you Lauren Adler Dear, MS, RD for the tip!) Cutest mason jars eva….at Target!smoothie

Yes, another yummy smoothie!

I made my smoothie with Green Valley lactose free yogurt, blueberries, some ice, coconut slivers, chia seeds and some lime juice.smoothie ingredes

How cute is my new mason jar?  LOVE it!!!glass ready
