  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice (1/2 lime)
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice

Recipe Notes

Preparation note:

If smoothie is too thick, add 1/4 cup milk and re-blend. If smoothie is too thin, add 1/4 cup berries or ice, and re-blend.

Ingredient substitutions:

Substitute plain or vanilla yogurt for strawberry yogurt if desired. Use dairy-free yogurt or culinary coconut milk in place of strawberry yogurt to make this recipe vegan. 

Look for pink dragon fruit if you want the color to be similar to mine.
