Strawberry Chia Frosty – This thick, sweet shake is the perfect way to cool down this summer. An easy recipe with only five ingredients!
The hubbers had a birthday this weekend.
Youth spoils us silly when it comes to birthdays. When you’re a kid, the world revolves around you on your big day!
A grand party, tons of presents, everyone singing your praises and treating you like you had anything to do with being born. You look forward to aging another year, imagining your future as a free adult, out from under mom and dad’s thumb.
Then, you gradually begin to hit the years marked by exclamations of disbelief and wonderment…’it seems like just yesterday…’ or ‘I can’t believe that was ten years ago!’, which is pretty much where the hubs and I are currently parked.
Movies we liked when we were kids are now decades old, we find ourselves ‘out of it’ with current music and slang (what is ‘bae’??), and the words coming out of our mouths sound distinctly like something our parents said.
So goes life, huh?
In lieu of presents, I spent the majority of the day catering to my bridegroom…literally!
Pancakes and eggs for breakfast, Healthy Cinnamon Rolls, and this delicious frosty were all on the menu!
I’ve made this for my girls a few times now, and it has turned into a requested recipe. When I feed it to them, I typically split it in half.
The chia seeds give it a nice thickness without turning it into the popular pudding, and the frozen berries give it the ‘frosty’ texture. With only five ingredients, this is an easy treat to make, and it’s healthy enough to have for breakfast!

I’ve only tried this recipe with my Homemade Coconut Milk, but I imagine any milk you enjoy would taste yummy!
