Chia Green Juice


This recipe is perfect for mid-morning snack or afternoon pick-me-up
You can do fresh squeezed for optimal nutrients or use the juices I have listed in the recipe. Either way, it is sweet and satisfying. Chia seeds add fiber, protein, and antioxidents. Triple threat.

1 Heaping TBSP hydrated chia seeds*
1 part Organic Mighty Greens Juice**
1 part Organic Orange Juice

*I hydrate my chia seeds overnight in coconut water, adds great flavor to any juice/salad dressing/sauce

FEEL FREE TO CREATE YOUR OWN GREEN JUICE- I find using this one saves time, money, energy, and dishes. (I hate dishes) 

**SUJA Essentials is USDA Organic Mighty Greens juice, including apple, celery, cucumber, kale, collard Greens, lemon, mint tea, spinach, ginger, spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, alfalfa grass

I recommend putting a splash of OJ in the chia seeds and stirring to smooth out all the lumps before adding the remaining liquid
