2 Tb chia seeds soaked in 3/4 cup water for 30 minutes or overnight
8 oz fresh organic strawberries or 4 oz frozen
1 large handful of spinach, kale or romaine
1 Tb protein powder (optional) I like Sun Warrior or Nutrition Defense
6 drops liquid stevia (optional)
1/2 banana, frozen (optional this will make it sweeter and creamier, if you are new to green smoothies it makes it easier to get started )
Put all ingredients into a blender.
Blend until smooth. Add water if you want it to be thinner, it is quite thick. I like it thick.
Chef’s note: The color will be brown from the spinach and strawberries together but don’t get scared it tastes great!
If you don’t have the chia you can use filtered water or coconut water, it will be fine just with a little less nutrition. Check my post on chia seeds to find out more. The same is true about the kelp granules add them in for more nutrition if you don’t have them you can still make the smoothie
