How to make a chia seed strawberry banana smoothie (not layered):

  • Make the chia pudding as described above, then add it to your blender along with the fresh fruit, the frozen fruit and milk of choice. Blend until completely smooth. Pour into a large glass and enjoy!

Notes

NOTE: the chia pudding is best when you give it time to gel. It will usually gel in about 10-15 minutes. But, if you don't want to wait for that to happen in the morning, you can easily mix it up and store it in the fridge overnight.
