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...

Recipe Directions

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!

Pretty pink color too (BTW, berry measurements are approx.)

Sarah...I dunno... I would venture to say 3 days. Thus far, 2 has been fine, although the banana makes it get a bit darker. You might want to leave the banana out and mix it in with the greens. The only thing I noticed though is that once you make the smoothie itself, you should drink it within an hour or two.

How long do you think it would last in the fridge? Do you think you could freeze it? Anything that makes the morning go faster is great - thanks very much.

I learned about blueberry gel by accident! I left a part of a blueberry smoothie in the fridge and came back to Jell-O. Great recipe.

You must be a pro! I didn't realize it was the blueberries that did it. If you prewasj you greens and store them in a greenbag, this is the quickest green smoothie around. The gel makes the blender tough to clean, but its a good excuse to fillit with warn water to soak and leave!

I knew by the description, before I read the ingredients, that this must contain blueberries! It's interesting how they gel isn't it?
