The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Oh ho hum, another smoothie recipe, right?  Wrong!

This raw strawberry milk recipe is divine. Trust me. The texture is wonderful. Sirova, the recipe's originator, compares the taste to standard strawberry milk--that thick, syrupy smooth sweetness. Yum! This recipe really does take me back to my childhood.

Warning:

Do not attempt unless you have a Vitamix, a Blendtec, or another high-powered blender! Chia seeds won't blend well in a regular blender.

This recipe is perfect for a Summer evening. And great for kids, they'll love it.

True to Rawtarian fashion, it only has just a few ingredients. When it comes to this raw strawberry milk recipe, simpler really is better.

I have a blender thats not a vitamix etc but is a fairly good average blender. I can do recipies like this in it. I just grind nuts first then add the rest of the ingredients, bit by bit if necessary. Chia seeds etc can be ground in a coffee grinder first as well.

Hi Sara,

Great tips! Truly. Totally agree about liquids first, with the hardest things on top.

Also, I totally did the same thing with my blender. I think I burned out two crappy ones motors before I got my Vitamix, which I had to save up for :)

Hi you don't mention that chia seeds needs to be soaked for at least 20mins, if not and are consumed before take water from the body,,,,and can dehydrate,,,

Good point, Amanda. In this recipe, 2 cups of water are added, so dehydration shouldn't be a problem. But you're right, chia seeds swell up and absorb water - this can cause problems in some people. Anyone interested can check out: https://www.therawtarian.com/skinny-chia-seeds

The simplest ideas are the best. I have just started using chia seeds, not a convert yet. I'll try this.

Perhaps the strawberry milk will help convert you... even just a little bit more! :)

Hi Eggy,

It's a bit sweet for breakfast - try the green smoothie instead

Wanted to make this (or possibly another nut free recipe-I haven't looked through all yet) for a cooking activity at my daughter's nursery school. About how many servings do you think this makes?

Hi,

Are you suppose to soak the chia seeds first? I tried blending in vitamix but the seeds didn't blend up, stayed black and splattered all over the blender sides.

Hi Jennie, no soaking is required. Next time you could get the mixture blending and smoothie like, then stop, add chia seeds, and continue blender. It sounds like your blender isn't the greatest :)

So, if you don't have a Vita Mix, would ground Chia seeds work as well?

Yes, ground chia seeeds would work exactly the same if your blender isn't quite as good. :) Either is fine

Could I make this with fresh strawberries instead of frozen?

Okay, that was a silly question. I just went back and read where you said you should not use fresh. As I only have fresh, I will try to cut out a bit of the water called for and add ice in its stead.
