Betty's Chia Seed Green Smoothie

Betty demonstrates how to make a Chia Seed Green Smoothie. This recipe came from an article in the Lexington Herald Leader newspaper, March 21, 2013. The article gives three recipes for using the nutritious chia seed. One of the recipes, Chia Seed Muffins, has already appeared in Betty’s Kitchen.

Chia Seed Green Smoothie

1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 ½ cups pear juice, coconut water, water, or a mixture
3 romaine lettuce or kale leaves
1 small cucumber, peeled
3 parsley sprigs

Add all ingredients to a blender and liquefy using most powerful setting. Blend until smooth. Drink immediately. Makes 1 serving. Enjoy! –Betty 🙂
