Citrus Explosion Green Smoothie

Wake up your taste buds with a Citrus Explosion Green Smoothie!  It's the best way to start the day!
Servings: 2 people

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds (mixed with 3 Tablespoons of water and allowed to gel for a few minutes)
  • 1 cup spinach (or other greens)
  • ½ c frozen pineapple
  • ½ c frozen mango
  • 1 small orange, peeled (a clementine/mandarin/Satsuma is great!)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 small wedge lime (with peel) (equivalent to a teaspoon of lime, see video for visual!)
  • 1 c orange juice

Instructions

  • 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.  
  • Enjoy!

Notes

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!
