Tropical Anti-Inflammatory Wild Berry Smoothie
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup frozen wild blueberries, thawed
1/2 ripe avocado
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup pure pineapple juice
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup loosely packed kale leaves (you may also use baby spinach leaves)
1/2 tablespoon honey
- Place the chia seeds and almond milk into a bowl.
- Allow to sit for a minimum of 2 hours. I find it best to soak the chia seeds overnight in the fridge this way they are ready to go come morning. The chia seeds will soak up some of the almond milk as they swell.
- Place all of the ingredients, including the chia/almond milk mixture, into a blender.
- Puree until smooth.
- The smoothie will be nice and thick. However, if you would prefer your smoothie to have a thinner consistency, add in additional pineapple juice, a tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is met.
