I created this smoothie to keep me going in the morning and prepare for heavy workouts. It's high in good fat and antioxidants and will actually fill you up through the morning. It is also dairy-free.

Cook's Note:

If you would prefer a dairy-filled smoothie or don't want the extra fat, then don't add the chia seeds and coconut butter. Replace the almond milk with 1/2 cup of your favorite plain yogurt and 1/2 cup of orange juice.

I took the recipe submitter's suggestion and used 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt and a half cup of naturally sweetened grapefruit juice. I kept the chia seeds but omitted the coconut butter. Very good. Read More

The chia seeds made it so thick you had to use a spoon so it wasn't like a smoothie but a pudding. Read More

I just made this now and it hit the spot. Lately I've been pulling back from overly frozen smoothies because they either give me a headache or heartburn from the sugar. This was perfect because it's not too sweet. I actually forgot to add the honey in my haste and I don't even miss it. While I like coconut butter for cooking I couldn't bring myself to add it to the smoothie so I used unsweetened coconut flakes instead and I didn't have blackberries so I used raspberries and blueberries. It made a pretty purple drink. I've always used chia seeds but never noticed before they are a great iron calcium and protein source as well as fiber. Added bonus is this doesn't use frozen banana (a mainstay of my normal smoothie) so I might actually get my kid to try it.;) Read More

Throw in a handful of frozen kale - you'll never taste it and it will up the nutrients! Read More

This is not a bad start but try adding 1/2 - 1 cup of plain non-fat kefir instead of almond milk and you have a great start to your day! If you want to boost your metabolism add some egg white protein. Read More
