Healthy Indian Kheer Smoothie - Vegan Chia and Apple Breakfast Smoothie

Indian Kheer or Payasam is a creamy pudding prepared usually with rice or vermicelli and thick milk. (Milk simmered for a hour or so). It is obviously loaded with calories and sugar. This is my effort to recreate the goodness of that without any sugar and full of healthy ingredients. A couple of things I wanted to add to this was raisins and almond flakes. That would totally complete the pudding. Call it Indian Kheer Smoothie or Chia and Apple Pudding or Chia Breakfast Smoothie. It fits all the bills.

Ingredients (Makes 3 medium cups)

Frozen Banana 1
Apple 1
Soy Milk or Milk 1 cup
Powdered Oats 1/4 cup
Flax seeds Powdered 1 tsp
Chia Seeds 2 tbsp
Cardamon Powder 1/2 tsp

Method of Preparation

1. Prepare the chia seeds first. Soak 2 tbsp of chia seeds in half a cup of warm water for about 15-20 min.

2. Blend the frozen banana in pulses till powdered.

3. Add the rest of the ingredients (not chia) and blend till combined.

4. Add the soaked chia gel and mix well ( a quick blend).

Serve! Hope you enjoy this smoothie.
