Feel free to add a tsp of chia seeds to your morning smoothie to increase creaminess. Add the chia to the juice, let it set for 15 minutes before putting it into the blender for smoothie making. You can read more about chia at The Natural News, Chia Seed Recipes, and an online search will turn up hundreds of more sites.
4 tbsp chia seeds
1 can (398 ml) lower fat coconut milk
Mix these together in a medium size bowl. Stir occasionally for the next 15 minutes to keep from clumping.
I served with a sprinkle of coconut. Very yummy and kept me feeling full for the rest of the evening.
