Author Notes: This is truly a natural energy drink if there ever was one! Coconut water is hydrating and full of electrolytes. The chia seeds add protein for a burst of energy, but also aid in digestion. Give it a quick stir before drinking to distribute the seeds, or drink through a straw and enjoy the little “pop” from the chia seeds.Simple Green Smoothies

Serves: 1

  • 8 ounces coconut water
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • squeeze fresh lime juice
  • OPTIONAL: 1/4 diced peaches or strawberries
  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a glass or jar. Let stand for 5-10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to absorb some of the liquid.
  2. Drink immediately, or refrigerate until ready to drink.
