Green Goddess Smoothie + Green Chia Pot

You guys ready? This is probably the simplest 2-in-1 recipe I can share with you.

It’s so so easy, you make the smoothie, drink a glass full for breakfast, and use the rest for a substantial snack by mixing it with chia seeds. Taa-daa! You’re basically tackling two things at once, so it’s a definite win for me! I make this in the morning before work and don’t even have to worry about leaving something ready the night before.

It’s perfectly sweet from the banana, with the perfect nutty-ness from the peanut butter that comes through without being too overpowering. Every sip — or bite, from the pot – has that hint of peanut butter that I just love, so it never feels too “green”.

Oh, you can use almond if you want, but I’ve been having a peanut butter phase at the moment so yea, that’s what I’m using!

Both the avocado, peanut butter and banana make this an incredibly creamy smoothie – just how I like it! I hate it when I make a smoothie that turns out watery and unsatisfying. I need my smoothie to be thick, like the kind that basically wobbles when you shake the cup.

Of course if you want yours a bit thinner then simply add a bit more water. To each their own, ya know?
