Mango Chia Seed Smoothie

chia seed smoothie

I love chia seeds for their nutritional properties, but don’t always want the seedy, tapioca-like texture of chia in puddings & gels. Enter the chia seed smoothie. Chia seeds in smoothies help create a thick, smooth texture that’s enough to make you feel like you’re drinking a rich milkshake. Once I discovered this, I started adding […]

S’mores are the best. Really, does anyone not like that melty, chocolatey, toasty taste? I think it is one of life’s most perfect combinations.

Nearly every Saturday morning for most of my 20′s, my roommates and I would head to our favorite coffee shop to lounge on the deck, drink frosty blended coffees, and laugh about whatever had happened the night before. It was a glorious routine, and one that we all miss. Now we’re all moms – moms with a lot less […]

I don’t usually add vegetables to smoothies, simply because I like the taste of the fruit alone and eat plenty of veggies at other meals.
