'Purple' Green Smoothie Recipe

I have found that the key to a yummy smoothie is having at least one ingredient frozen. It makes it creamier and smoother. 
I’ve added in a few extra super foods: coconut oil and chia seeds. I only add the chia seeds in after I’ve blended up the smoothie because I want the seeds whole. As they pass through your body they clean out your intestines helping to detoxify your system! 
They also help to regulate your blood sugar, so that you don’t have spikes and crashes throughout the day.

  • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)

Instructions

  • In a blender, combine all the fruit and veg

Notes

I pre-make a jar of chia seed gel by mixing 1 part chia seeds to 3 parts water. You can store it in the fridge and scoop it into drinks and smoothies.
