Banana Apple Chia Seed Smoothie
If you’re craving a delicious smoothie that’s also power-packed with nutrients and protein, look no further. This tasty banana apple smoothie is all that and more.
I actually developed this smoothie as a “meal on the go” kind of thing, so it inevitably found its way into our Detox program as a meal substitute, because it had everything we were looking for.
2 cups sweetened almond milk
1 carrot (peeled)
1 apple, cored
2 tbsp. chia seeds
1 cup crushed ice
Place all of the ingredients into your blender / emulsifier of choice ( our longrunning go-to is this Ninja), and blend for about a minute or until creamy. Feel free to add more chia seeds for a bigger protein punch.
If you’ve never had chia seeds before and are curious about them, make no mistake, they are a powerful food for longterm health. Not only does every ounce contain around 4 grams of very digestible protein, but the seeds are loaded with fiber and antioxidants. For smoothies such as this one, they provide a great balance in terms of carbohydrates and protein, and also aid in the digestion process. If you don’t know where to get them, no worries on that. You can buy huge bags of them on the cheap right here.
If you enjoyed the smoothie, let us know! We’re always trying to up our smoothie game, so any way we can improve a recipe, we won’t hesitate to try ideas and adapt. We’re looking for healthy, holistic solutions that work!
