Detox Green Smoothie with Chia Seeds

Drinking this right now as I’m typing this. This is going to be my go-to green smoothie for a while to get this booty back in shape! My detox green smoothie with chia seeds also has yummy pineapple and banana to cut through the spinach flavor, and a little unsweetened almond milk to make it super creamy.  This is kind of like my other go-to smoothie, Ally’s Power Morning Smoothie but without the oats and honey. It’s just a LITTLE healthier, with lower carbs and a little more protein from the chia seeds.

Have you tried chia seeds yet? They are basically the superfood from the gods.  You should be able to find them in a normal grocery store, but if you can’t here’s a link for them: Food To Live Chia Seeds (8 Ounces)

They’re probably a little more expensive than you were expecting, ($5-$7 a bag) but that bag will last forever. Promise.  Just one tablespoon of chia seeds give you amazing health benefits from antioxidants, fiber, a huge energy and metabolism boost, and will keep you full (which is why it’s perfect for a meal replacement smoothie!)  You don’t notice or taste them at all, so it’s great to sneak them in like this 😉

Also, did you see my cool little cup? I got a Ninja Blender as a present, and oh my gosh I’m in love. You can blend smoothies directly into a single-serving cup like this one! No more mess, no more pouring. OBSESSED. Find it here if you’re interested >> Ninja Professional Blender with Single Serve (BL740)Green Smoothie with Chia Seeds
