Sunday Smoothie: Chia Power

completely spent & starving after 90 minutes of super hot yoga this morning, an ice cold green smoothie was for sure in my near future πŸ™‚ 

What You’ll Need:

β™‘ organic baby spinach, 2 handfuls (currently in the fridge: Organic Girl)
β™‘ 1 banana
β™‘ 1 cup organic mango chunks
β™‘ 1 organic lemon
β™‘ spices: cinnamon & nutmeg, to taste
β™‘ Chia Seeds: 2 tbspns
β™‘ unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Chia Love
I just can’t get enough of chia seeds lately. They give my smoothies that extra oomph – texture, thickness & keep me satiated much longer than simply greens & fruit alone. 

Presoaked Chia Seeds
I stopped adding my chia seeds to the blender quite sometime ago — they stick to the walls of the blender and its just so wasteful. Plus, presoaking them this way allows them expand a bit more and makes the smoothie extra satisfying & filling.

    Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time.
