Anti-Stress SmoothieServes: 2
- Make chia gel: Pour two cups of filtered water into a jar, add in 3 tablespoons of chia seeds, and stir well. Let sit for at least 10 minutes. (Use this time to go on with your morning routine!)
- When ready, pour chia gel and all remaining smoothie ingredients into your blender, and blend on high until smooth. The avocado and chia gives it a thick, spoonable consistency (perfect to turn into a smoothie bowl). If you prefer a thinner consistency, simply add more water or ice.
- Top with cacao nibs and sliced almonds, if you desire.
- Sip and savor slowly. Save the remaining serving for a snack or tomorrow's breakfast.
