APPLE CINNAMON CHIA SMOOTHIE

I LOVE cinnamon. And with the added benefit of chia seeds, this drink makes the perfect snack.

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup chia seeds

1 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk

1 cup water

1 tablespoon cinnamon 

1 organic granny smith apple - *puréed

Stevia to sweeten

DIRECTIONS

Mix all ingredients together in a large glass and give it a good stir. Let the chia seeds plump up for about five minutes before drinking. If you want a smoother consistency, blend until smooth.

*NOTE: I peel the granny smith apple and then grate it on a microplane. I find this to be the easiest way to purée it. You can always sub with unsweetened applesauce.
