Mango 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 chia to nearly every smoothie.

Among my favorites is this Mango Banana Chia Seed Smoothie. It’s perfectly sweet and has the most dreamy consistency.
