1 ripe, frozen banana
2 bunches of fresh spinach
½ an avocado, chilled
1 tbsp chia seeds
½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
½ cup unsweetened coconut water
1 tbsp whole coconut milk
3-5 ice cubes
Optional (for added electrolytes): ½ tbsp lemon juice + ½ tsp sea salt
I’m on a smoothie kick at the moment… Here is a cooling and moisturizing smoothie that’s perfect if you’re feeling hot and dried out.
Freeze banana beforehand. Mix chia seeds with almond milk and set in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Start by blending the frozen ingredients, slowly adding the chia seed mixture. Add remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly.
Feel free to add additional greens if desired. Try some celery, cucumber, kale…
