Did someone say Smoothie?!

Wait no one said smoothie?! Well I did! Another easy, peasy, healthy recipe coming at you!

This actually came out to about 6 ingredients for me, but you may want to to use less than what I did if you prefer your smoothies a certain way! Some of these can be added or you can substitute something other words, some add in's are optional ;) 

Let's jump right in!
Gather all necessary items:
-Ninja blender (or your choice of blender)
-Cups (we prefer the Tervis cups because we make extra and freeze for the week and these work great)
-Vanilla Whet Protein
-Chia seeds (ground)
-1 bag Mixed Berry Frozen fruit (you can use fresh or even just one kind of fruit)
-Pom juice (I tried adding pom seeds last time and it was too hard to chew ha!) I use this sparingly when I do choose to use it.
-Greens (I use the ItWorks) This helps ensure I get my greens throughout the week too because, well, I am sometimes lazy motivationally challenged to take them daily. 
-Almond Milk

1. Throw in your fruit
2. Add scoops of Whey- I do about 3 full scoops mainly because I need the added protein during the week after hard workouts and I am dividing up this recipe to eat throughout the week.
3. Add in chia- I typically just pour haha, but you may want to measure out your preference.
4. Add in Pom juice- just a few tablespoons 
5. Add in Greens-5 scoops (the scooper on the It Works is tiny)
6. Add almond milk- I do not have exact measurements for this because we just add until it get about half way and blend then add more to make it more creamy)

Blend, Blend, Blend!!!

You may need to add more milk depending on how liquidy you like your smoothies. 

Disperse into cups for the week and freeze! I usually take it out in the am and let it defrost for about 2 hours and it can be a slushy consistency or if you leave it a bit longer it's "drinkable".

Check your grill after drinking though, Chia loves to stick and hide!! 

Hope you find this just as tasty as I do!

Have a BLESSED week!
