Notes

For easy blending, add the almond milk to the blender first, followed by the yogurt and chia seeds, and then fruit on top. Adding the liquid to a blender first will help it blend everything together more easily.

Use frozen banana. This will help to thicken the smoothie and also make it creamy.

Drink within 10 minutes of making. Chia seeds are very absorbent and will thicken the smoothie more as it sits, so it’s best to drink this smoothie right after making it.

Adjust the amount of liquid to your preference. Depending on your personal taste, and if you use frozen vs. fresh fruit, you may need to add more or less almond milk to blend the smoothie to your desired texture. It’s always best to start with slightly less and then add more as needed.
