She makes 3 easy and delicious smoothies. These particular smoothies have more omega 3’s than salmon, more potassium than bananas, more calcium than milk, and are loaded with antioxidants. They’re a complete protein and, unlike flaxseeds, they are very shelf stable and not prone to rancidity.
Chia seed drinks are the perfect snack as they have natural sugars that, combined with the fat and protein of the seeds, holds you over for hours, thus losing the need to snack in between meals.
They’re super popular. Super delicious. And super EXPENSIVE! A 10 oz. bottled chia seed drink is nearly $4.00! That’s more expensive than kombucha, Starbucks, and champagne.
In this post, she shows you how to make your own chia seed drink for a fraction of the cost. We all love tips for saving money, right?
I’ve gotta be honest, I kind of get tired of cooking three square meals every day. I let my Vitamix do the work a lot of the time, and I make puddings, protein drinks, and smoothies quite often. I love to make a quick, yummy blueberry chia seed smoothie, since it’s super simple and packed full of nutrition. If I make one for lunch, I won’t get hungry all day and before I discovered chia seeds I was starving by 4:00 and I’d be at the vending machine eating stuff I certainly didn’t need!
Smoothies started as a way for me to sneak in a plethora of super health foods. Now, I keep my smoothies pretty basic and use just a handful of key ingredients.
Watch how Ann Le makes these delicious smoothies so you can get your blender out and make some of these too!
