A Raw for $10 a Day or Less breakfast recipe for a simple chia smoothie packed with antioxidant love and plenty of super nutrient charged chia seeds! If you haven't yet discovered the wonders of chia there is no time like the present. Chia is amazing not only for its nutrition (complete protein and high omega 3 fatty acid content) but they also offer a great, gentle form of dietary fiber. When chia is mixed with liquid they will form a jelly-like paste, and act as a gentle "sweep" through the intestines. A great way to get things moving so to speak! White chia is very similar to the more standard brown chia, however they are slightly smaller, more delicate, and are a bit easier to chew.

You can use either cultured almond milk yogurt from your local health food store or make you own using soaked, sprouted, and blanched almonds blended into a creamy, thick puree and cultured overnight with probiotics. You may also choose to emit the yogurt and substitute a few tsp of lemon juice for a hint of citrusy tang. Fresh clementines blend with coconut nectar and vanilla bean to create the thick, sweet fruit "coulis" or puree. A pure and simple dessert!
Ever wondered if there is a way to make your own VEGAN cultured Greek style yogurt? Well the answer is yes and Priscilla Soligo of Rawthentic Food will show you how with this simple recipe!
