This morning, when I went to make my usual smoothie, I discovered we were out of two of the main ingredients (banana and spinach). So I improvised and here is what I came up with:
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1/2 cup water
1 orange, peeled and chopped
1/3 of an English cucumber, peeled and chopped
a handful of frozen pineapple chunks
1 large leaf of lettuce, ripped into pieces
1/2 cup carrot juice
1/2 cup almond milk
Throw everything into a blender and blend until smooth. I use an immersion blender so I had to pause and remove the orange pulp from the blades before finishing the blending into a smooth smoothie.
Just thought I’d share!
