Notes

My experience with chia seeds- After blending together the fruit and other ingredients,I added some chia seeds. With the fruity smoothie I added two tablespoons of chia seeds, it tasted delicious but caused the smoothie to be a little less smooth and silky, but  a little bit more gritty. The second time I spooned a tablespoon of the chia seeds on the top. I ate the top part first and enjoyed the crunch of the chia seeds, but then was happy to enjoy my  Smoothie the rest of the way down the glass.So now I use it for topping also ,for crunch and garnish.
conclusion –Friends If you haven’t tried Chia Seeds, try them. they have a really nutty, toasty, sesame seed-ish flavor. They’re awesome. But aside from their flavor, a lot of people like them for health reasons, as they evidently have healthy omegas, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. I consider that a bonus-!
