Vegan "Buttah Mylk" (Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, NON-Goitrogenic)

A few days ago my neighbour was rejoicing in some chives that she was given by another neighbour-- I told her that we had chives in our garden as well, but that I rarely use them.  She said, "But this is the buttermilk and chives season!" and I was immediately transported back to a time in my life when a frosty glass of buttermilk with chopped chives was the highlight of my Summer afternoon!  Maybe it's a farmgirl thang, not sure, but I suddenly got a hankering for buttermilk.  Problem: I am definitely adverse to dairy, or it is adverse to me.

Sooooooooooo.... how about a smoothie that tastes like buttermilk, but that has no dairy in it?

Here it is... it may be difficult for you to imagine a mix of avocado, lemon, chiaseed, banana, chives, and sea salt tasting like buttermilk... but they DO, they really DO-- very similar creamy, chunky texture, and very similar tart, sweet, salty, chive-y flavour!  Please try it and let me know if you agree!

  • 1/2 ripe, soft Avocado
  • 1/4 C. Chia seed Gel (instructions HERE)
  • 1 small ripe Banana, chopped
  • Small handful Chives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt (all those 82 trace minerals!)
  • 1/2 - 1 fresh Lemon, juice and zest - (I would go for closer to 1 whole lemon)
  • 1 - 2 C. Water
  • 2- 4 Ice Cubes
Go ahead and spin it up!  
Place in high speed blender (or in 2 batches in regular blender) and blend until smooth... Mmmm.... yum.... no dairy bloating, etc.
