Let’s talk Chia Seed Smoothies!!!

But first—in case you’re not familiar with the super seeds—let’s quickly cover a few fun chia seed facts. These tiny seeds are packed with vitamins, minerals, and fabulous antioxidants, as well as a significant amount of protein and fiber. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 11 grams of fiber (40% of your daily value!), which will keep you feeling full and satisfied while helping to improve digestion and regulate your blood sugar. (HALLELUJAH.)

Most importantly, chia seeds are one of the best plant-based source of omega-3 fatty acids on the planet. Omega-3s are glorious, and because they are not made in our bodies, we need to get them from our diet. These fatty acids help build new cells, reduce inflammation, regulate physiological functions, and prevent heart disease and diabetes. They also lower depression levels (be happier!), improve cognitive function (be smarter!), and promote healthy skin, hair and nails (be prettier!).

Chia seeds are one of my favorite ways to boost the nutrition and staying power of my smoothies, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite chia seed smoothie recipes below should you need some suped up smoothie inspiration.

Happy blending, friends!
