Wake up your taste buds with a Citrus Explosion Green Smoothie! It's the best way to start the day!
1Tablespoonchia seeds(mixed with 3 Tablespoons of water and allowed to gel for a few minutes)
1cupspinach (or other greens)
1small orange,peeled (a clementine/mandarin/Satsuma is great!)
1small wedge lime (with peel)(equivalent to a teaspoon of lime, see video for visual!)
Place chia seeds in a small bowl with the water. Allow to sit for a few minutes while you get the other ingredients ready so that the chia seeds soften.
Place all ingredients into the blender, including the chia gel, and blend. You can add water or ice to thin or thicken the consistency of the smoothie to your preference.
This recipe makes a pretty large amount—maybe 24 ounces of smoothie? I can usually give each of my boys a bit and have enough for myself as well. It should serve 1 hungry adult, 2 regular adults, or 1 adult and a couple of kiddos!
