Detox Smoothie – Triple Berry Chia

Triple-Berry-Detox-Smoothie

I’ve been loving this detox smoothie lately.

Although writing recipes for this site keeps me on track with mostly healthy meals, my snacks are typically whatever I can quickly grab: chips or pretzels, etc.

So I really wanted to come up with something equally as quick and convenient, but also new and interesting and more nutritious too.

This detox smoothie – filled with mixed berries, banana, and healthy chia seeds – fits the bill perfectly!

First, the mixture of berries gives this detox smoothie a deep pink, beautiful, vibrant color that just looks delicious.

And this detox smoothie tastes wonderful too, slightly sweet and slightly tart.

With a rich and creamy texture that’s thick enough to eat with a spoon!

This berry-filled detox smoothie is such a healthy, nutrient-rich recipe too.

Because it’s vegan, it has absolutely no saturated fat or cholesterol.

And this healthy detox smoothie features:

  • detoxifying fiber
  • filling protein
  • healthy minerals like manganese, potassium, and calcium
  • immunity-boosting vitamin C

Triple-Berry-and-Chia-Detox-Smoothie

This detox smoothie recipe makes six generous portions, so it’s easy to store individually sized portions in the fridge or freezer for a quick and easy snack or breakfast anytime.

Or if you prefer, it’s simple to cut this recipe in half to make just a few servings.

Description

Total Time: 15 minutes
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 0 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

Level: Easy


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups organic frozen strawberries, thawed
  • 2 cups organic frozen blackberries, thawed
  • 1 1/3 cups organic frozen raspberries, thawed
  • 2 large bananas, peeled and cut into thirds
  • 1/4 cup agave (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add the chia seeds and water to a mixing bowl and stir until all seeds have been soaked. Place the bowl in the refrigerator.
  2. Meanwhile, add the strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, bananas, and agave (optional) to a food processor or blender. Pulse until ingredients are pureed.
  3. Remove the mixing bowl from the fridge. The chia seeds should have absorbed most of the water, forming a gel-like consistency. Add the chia mixture to the food processor and pulse again until well combined. Serve immediately.
  4. Storage: Smoothie will hold up for 3-4 days if stored in the refrigerator in a covered airtight container. Alternatively, portion individual servings of the smoothie into covered, airtight containers and freeze; thaw in the fridge before serving.

      I use banana to add sweetness and a thick, creamy texture to this smoothie. I’d recommend full-fat coconut milk, frozen chopped mango, or vanilla yogurt as substitutes 🙂
