It is officially winter and I have pretty much hit my limit of starchy vegetables. Getting in more greens for me is always a challenge. By now I am sure you know how much I love my breakfast smoothies!
I have recently been experimenting a lot with overnight oats. Most recipes I find on the internet call for chia seeds. I have yet to embrace the texture it brings to oats, puddings and the like. Something about the gelatinous little seeds just turn me off. But blended up in a smoothie they act as a thickner and add healthy does omega 3's
This smoothie literally tastes like cookie dough. Well I don't indulge in much cookie dough, so I have to get my kicks else ware. Sweet, energizing and GREEN! What more could you ask for out of breakfast.
I usually use water as my smoothie base but the almond milk here makes it super creamy and feel like dessert!
Green Chia Smoothie
2 handfuls of spinach
1 frozen banana
1 scoop sunwarrior vanilla, classic or warrior blend
1-2 TBSP chia seeds
1/2-1 cup almond milk (I used homemade unsweetened vanilla almond milk!)
Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend. The longer the better, resulting in a thicker smoothie!
