Instructions
For the chia pudding:
  1. In a small bowl, mix chia seeds with nut milk and optional honey.
  2. Refrigerate for 5 minutes, stir and refrigerate for another 5 minutes, or until ready to use.
For the smoothie:
  1. Place all ingredients in blender*. Blend on high until smooth and creamy, scraping the edges halfway through to ensure evenness. If you enjoy your smoothie thinner, add more milk.
  2. Scrape into a bowl using a rubber spatula, sprinkle with toppings if desired and serve immediately.
Notes
Nutrition information is a rough estimate of entire recipe without toppings.

*If you plan on making smoothies frequently, I definitely suggest investing in a good blender. (I went through 3 cheep blenders over the course of one semester in college. no joke). I love my vitamix - probably one of the best Christmas gifts I’ve ever received. It literally holds up anything. You can buy them certified refurbished which helps cut the cost and still gives you a great product. I love this Vitamix.
