If drinking the same juice over and over again is getting boring, try switching it up by adding even more nutrients to your glass. This morning I was in the mood for a filling breakfast. I had a leftover juice in the fridge from making a large batch yesterday so I decided to add in my favorite produce of all time, avocado, and one of my favorite superfoods, chia seeds!
The combination produced a rich, creamy shake that was filled with heaps of nutrients from my green juice, tons of healthy fats, protein and fiber. I had just finished running over the Brooklyn Bridge so it was the perfect drink to refuel my muscles.
The next time you have a leftover green juice in the fridge, try adding these to it for a full, well-balanced meal.
- 16 oz (500 ml) leftover green juice — I used the Morning Green Glory
- 1/4 avocado
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 4 ice cubes
- Splash of almond milk (optional)
- Add all ingredients to high-powered blender and blend on high for 45 – 60 seconds, until smooth.
- Serve and enjoy.
