Chia Seed Green Protein Shake

Chia Seed Green Protein Shake

Our current obsession is a peanut butter chia seed green smoothie. I like to call it a protein shake because of the different sources of plant protein that total 17 grams of protein. This is my son's all time favorite smoothie. Try it and you will be be a believer,  promise :) simple, healthy, delicious. My favorite combination!

1 cup almond milk
1 peeled banana
2 tbsp. peanut butter
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. raw honey
2 cups raw spinach
 
Blend until smooth
Enjoy. Seriously. You will :D
 

Why add chia seeds?
Chia seeds are an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid, Omega 3s, antioxidants and fiber. Chia seeds are rich vitamin B, D & E, calcium and iron. They are a complete protein. The gel formed when chia seeds absorb water slows down the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. This creates more endurance which makes chia seeds a perfect before workout snack. This gel also helps transport toxins out of your colon. Chia seeds absorb more than ten times their weight in water which aids your body's hydration.
 
We have recently fallen in love with chia seeds and have many fun recipes coming your way! For now we hope you give this one a try.
Have a wonderful week!
Grace and Peace,
Adoring Family
