This creamy and refreshing beverage is bursting with sweetness, tang, and texture. What’s more, the addition of fresh raspberries promotes fat loss, and coconut water keeps you hydrated! Woo-hoo!

NotesAnother excellent recipe for a frozen dessert. You can pour this blend into ice pop molds and lick your way to whole health!

Did You Know?

Chia seeds (yes, as in the Chia Pet) are a relative of the mint family and one of the most nutrient-dense foods available to us. These powerful little seeds have been enjoyed in South America for thousands of years and were revered by ancient warriors for promoting energy sustainability and hydration. Chia seeds offer a perfect 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3 ratio, 35 percent dietary fiber by weight, loads of antioxidants, and all the essential amino acids, making them a complete protein.

When combined with liquid, they expand to nine times their size, providing volume and emulsification for smoothies, dressings, puddings, and other desserts. When mixed with juice or coconut water, they create a refreshing tonic that increases and helps maintain hydration.
