  • Blueberries (about 10
  • Granola 1/4 cup
  • Nectarine or Peaches 1
  • Chia Seeds (about a teaspoon)

Blend greek yogurt and strawberries in a blender until smooth. This will turn into a liquid texture but you can always add more yogurt to the consistency of your choice. Add granola, blueberries, nectarines, currants and chia seed and enjoy!

  2. Place lemon mixture in a pitcher to serve or pour into a glass for a quick yummy refreshment. We used these milk bottles. Add water and ice to your liking and a few macaroons of course!
