This smoothie is a great place to start if you aren’t into the whole “green” thing.
It tastes as beautiful as it looks and is still packed full of yummy goodness.
You might have seen the buzz words “chia seeds” all around you. They have many benefits to your body, but one of the greatest benefits is its Omega 3 fats, which protect against inflammation. Apparently, there’s more Omega 3s in chia seeds than in salmon!
I just toss the whole chia seeds in my Vitamix with the ingredients, and it blends it so fine that nothing is gritty. If you don’t have a high powered blender, I would suggest grinding them in a spice grinder first, unless you’re ok with a little grit 🙂
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1½ cups frozen peaches
- ½ cup frozen raspberries
- 1 T maple syrup
- ½ t vanilla
- 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened (see note)
- ½-3/4 cup coconut water
- Put all ingredients in high powered blender in the order listed and blend until smooth, stopping to scrap down sides when necessary.
