I cannot handle a really thick, sweet, rich, and cold smoothie in the morning, but still wanted to try a healthy breakfast meal-in-a-drink. This suits perfect but is still filling and stays with me until lunch. Make chia gel by grinding 2 tbsp. chia seeds then stirring into 2 cups of water. This will get thick and gooey and keeps in the fridge for over a week. Depending on the sweetness of the fruit, you may want to adjust the honey to taste. Use green tea, or your favourite herbal or fruit blend. I use an immune boosting blend I get locally.
- 1⁄4 cup chia seeds, gel
- 1⁄4 cup plain yogurt
- 1⁄8 avocado
- 1⁄2 cup frozen fruit
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- 1 cup cold herbal tea or 1 cup green tea
- 1 dash vanilla
- Place all ingredients except tea and honey in blender. Start chopping, adding enough tea to make the ingredients blend well, and get the consistency you like. Add honey, then blend on high speed until your drink is smooth and uniform. Pour into a glass, add a straw, and drink!
I'm not totally sure how to rate this. It was filling and tasted okay, but actually not something that I would make again. It *did* fill me up nicely, though, so it definitely worked, and that's why I rate it four stars :) Maybe it depends on the kind of tea you use and the fruit. I used lemon grass tea and frozen mango, but overall, I think I don't care for the tea in it. Thanks none the less for an interesting smoothie experience :)<br/>Made for Spring PAC 2014
