I call this my sweetheart smoothie because of how gently all the flavors combine together. It’s filling yet light. Perfect for on-the-go!I also made this chia seed pudding which is just chia seeds soaked in almond milk over night. The texture is so fun to add to smoothies or other sweets! It doesn’t even have to be almond milk, it can be regular milk, coffee, juice, tea. When I first started making this pudding I used green tea to just make it more fun to drink. Obviously I didn’t make it into a pudding consistency but more of a watery gel. Fun fact about me is that I LOVE weird textures, such as grainy cornbread or porridge, fine noodles instead of regular, sugar on top of oatmeal, nibbling the skin off of walnuts, biting through a cucumber seed, or popping a grapefruit bubble (the little capsules of skin) one at a time. I hope I’m not the only one willing to be this honest… I promise I’m not crazy. Did I get off on a tangent? Anyway, this is a simple recipe that doesn’t have any harsh veggie flavors, if that not what you’re into. It’s sweet and subtle 🙂 Sometimes we need that in our lives, instead of the mega smoothies that we force ourselves to drink sometimes. This one is refreshing 😉 let me know how it goes.
