We make this as a large batch and split it amongst the five of us. It’s a great alt to caffeine and a grain-heavy breakfast. And we all agree that we feel awesome with such a wholesome start to our day!

What are Chia Seeds?

Chia seeds are small black seeds from the Salvia Hispanica plant – a member of the mint family. They’re small and hard in texture but are highly absorbent. When added to liquids, they transform into a jelly like mixture.

They’re great for thickening smoothies, puddings or even preserves – without the use of extra sugar or gelatin. Hooray!

Why add Chia Seeds to Smoothies?

Adding chia seeds to smoothies is a simple way to bring texture and added protein to your diet. Not to mention, they’re a rich source of healthy omega 3 fats, fiber, calcium, iron and phosphorus. And because they offer many nutritional benefits, they are a super seed to incorporate in your diet!

Chia seeds, often labeled as a “superfood,” are touted to offer benefits beyond their nutritional value, such as helping to lower cholesterol or improving gut health. Health claims about chia seeds include reducing appetite and weight, lowering triglycerides, and improving blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes.

  1. Add ingredients to your blender in the order listed (you want your greens at the bottom – near the blade – so they blend better and have the chia on the bottom to absorb some liquid before you blend).
  2. Wait a couple of minutes for the chia seeds to start soaking up the almond milk.
  3. Blend, serve and enjoy.

Tips, Variations & Add-ins

  • Spinach can be replaced with kale or chard, but the flavor will change.
  • You can use almost any fruit in this smoothie, it’s a great way to use up leftovers and add variety.
  • A frozen banana makes a big difference to the texture. It adds creaminess and thickens the smoothie almost ice-cream like and also helps keep it cool.
  • I used unsweetened almond milk to avoid added sugar.
  • Add ins and toppings are great ways to add variety and boost this recipe further.
    • Add-ins: protein powder, rolled oats, avocado, herbs, coconut
