Here's that wonderfully decadent smoothie recipe as promised...
Handful spinach or kale
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 ripe frozen banana
1 chopped peach
5 pitted dates(optional)
1 cup unsweetened almond, hemp, or coconut milk
1 cup water
Add ingredients to blender in order listed (you want your greens on the bottom by the blade so they blend better and have the chia on the bottom to absorb some liquid before you blend).
Wait a couple of minutes for the chia seeds to start soaking up the almond milk.
Blend, Serve and Enjoy!
Tip: Smoothies are the ultimate recipe for substitutions. Try swapping different greens, fruit or seeds to match your preference.
Bonus: Chia seeds not only have fiber and essential omega-3 fatty acids but they contain all of the essential amino acids from protein.
