Despite their small size, chia seeds are full of important nutrients. 

They’re an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, iron, and calcium. 

Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against various diseases.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup rolled oats, gluten-free

2 tbsp chia seeds, any color

1 tbsp flax seeds 

1 1/4 cup frozen blueberries 

3/4 cup frozen strawberries

Water as needed

Amrita Sunflower Butter and Jelly bar as topping 

 

Directions: 

  1. Blend dry ingredients with coconut water to get a smooth base.
  2. Add the rolled oats, chia seeds, flax seeds. Blend until smooth.
  3. Add 3/4 cup frozen blueberries and frozen strawberries. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. If too thick, add more coconut water, 1/4 cup at a time until desired consistency is reached. Smoothie should be very thick.
  5. Pour into glasses. Top with remaining chia seeds and blueberries. 
  6. Enjoy!
