I’ve been experimenting with chia seeds in my smoothies lately and have been loving the extra texture they add in! I was first introduced to chia seeds when I did a Whole30 over two years and I haven’t used them much since then. But while shopping at Aldi, I saw them on the shelf and thought they’d been an interesting addition to my smoothies.
Today, I’m sharing my favorite combination: chia seeds and berries. It’s an easy, two step smoothie. It takes a little bit more time than just blending everything up so I like to start it when I get back from run and let the chia seeds soak while I’m stretching or in the shower.
Berry Chia Seed Smoothie
