Berry Chia Smoothie

I have so many things I want to blog about this week… running, cycling… new shoes, squatty potties… but I’m swamped with school work and exercise so struggling for time. I’m actually multi-tasking right now and listening to a negotiation video case study for school as I type this but I want to share this recipe because I really enjoyed it this morning!

Ingredients 

  • 1.5 ripe bananas
  • 1 ripe kiwi
  • Handful blueberries
  • Handful strawberries
  • 1 tbls chia seeds
  • 2 large handfuls kale
  • 1 cup water
  • Handful of ice if desired

Instructions

  • Add everything except kale to blender – put kale on top
  • Blend until smooth
  • Enjoy immediately

  1. I soaked chia seeds overnight to have for breakfast one time and they just didn’t look appetizing to me so I never ate them. I know they’re good for you, however; so I’ll try them in a smoothie. I’m sure they’re better like that! Celeste:)

    • Hi Celeste! Thanks for your note.

      Chia seeds are really easy to throw in smoothies and you hardly know they are there. I can understand soaked chia seeds not being appetizing! I do love to soak them in coconut water for pudding though – perhaps you could try that? Recipe on the blog, just search for chia :)

      • I appreciate your thoughtful reply, but I think I’ll stick to putting them in smoothies. I just don’t think I can do the soaked ones even in a pudding – they really turned me off. Oh well!! Love your blog, by the way! Celeste:)

      • No worries Celeste – we’re all into different things. Good luck with the smoothies!
