kiwi and chia seed smoothie

img_0925

1 kiwi, firm, peeled and sliced in half
1/4 avocado
4 tbls. chia seeds
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 c. packed fresh mint leaves
1/2 c. ice (optional)
1 c. water
1 c. packed spinach or 1 medium kale leaf, stem removed

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth.

NOTE: To activate the enzymes in the seeds and nuts in any smoothie recipe for easier digestion, you can soak them ahead of time. Fill a bowl with enough water to cover the seeds or nuts and soak for at least 30 minutes, preferably overnight if time permits.
