This healthy breakfast recipe is based on the smoothie recipe from Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Everyone who loves breakfast should own this cookbook - I use it a lot.
This super smoothie recipe has become a big part of breakfast for me and my children. It's a quick & easy, healthy low-carb breakfast, no cooking required, tastes divine, and keeps me satisfied until lunch time.

Chia seeds give this recipe a lot of calcium and omega-3s without any of the yucky flavor of ground flax seeds; about 175 mg of calcium and 1225 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per serving!
A high speed blender works best for making a smooth puree quickly, but an ordinary blender or hand held blender stick will do the job - it'll just take longer and you'll have a chewier smoothie.
