Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you would prefer a dairy-filled smoothie or don't want the extra fat, then don't add the chia seeds and coconut butter. Replace the almond milk with 1/2 cup of your favorite plain yogurt and 1/2 cup of orange juice.

I took the recipe submitter's suggestion and used 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt and a half cup of naturally sweetened grapefruit juice. I kept the chia seeds but omitted the coconut butter. Very good.

I just made this now and it hit the spot. Lately I've been pulling back from overly frozen smoothies because they either give me a headache or heartburn from the sugar. This was perfect because it's not too sweet. I actually forgot to add the honey in my haste and I don't even miss it. While I like coconut butter for cooking I couldn't bring myself to add it to the smoothie so I used unsweetened coconut flakes instead and I didn't have blackberries so I used raspberries and blueberries. It made a pretty purple drink. I've always used chia seeds but never noticed before they are a great iron, calcium, and protein source as well as fiber. Added bonus is this doesn't use frozen banana (a mainstay of my normal smoothie) so I might actually get my kid to try it. ;)

Throw in a handful of frozen kale - you'll never taste it and it will up the nutrients!

This is not a bad start, but try adding 1/2 - 1 cup of plain non-fat kefir, instead of almond milk and you have a great start to your day! If you want to boost your metabolism add some egg white protein.
