Chia Fruit Smoothie

A classic smoothie with thick and creamy texture. Chia seeds have a very mild flavour so adding a spoonful to your food is a great way to get many health benefits like an energy boost and improved digestion from chia.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp soaked chia soak for 10-15 min in water
  • 1 cup fruit
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • Ice optional - if using frozen fruit, ice is not needed

Instructions

  • Place all the ingredients into blender and blend until desired consistency. If too thick, add water to thin.
  • Optional: soak your seeds in the milk instead of water
  • Be careful about not adding to many seeds to your blender because chia, when soaked in water, becomes gelatinous and will make a very very thick smoothie.

Notes

Try substituting coconut milk for almond milk for a different flavour. When eaten raw, chia seeds are excellent sources of omega 3 and dietary fiber.
