Recipe (Smoothie meal): Chia Peach Green Smoothie

October 13, 2017

In addition to our great article this week on weight loss, try this fantastic refreshing smoothie as a whole meal.  I love using homemade cashew milk and almond milk is just as great.  

 

Serves 1

handful spinach

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 banana

1 chopped peach

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

 

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.  You could also pre-soak the chia seeds in the almond milk to have your shake done quicker.

 

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.
