I HEART Spirulina

This blended drink has been a personal favorite for a few years now and I enjoy it the most right after a hard cardio session. The protein from the goji berries and spirulina will keep you going for hours!

2 cups fresh citrus juice (I used a grapefruit, orange, clementine combo)
1 cup frozen organic strawberries
small handful goji berries
1 tablespoon spirulina

Put all ingredients into a high-speed blender and combine until the berries are fully incorporated and the liquid is smooth.

Festive Chia Porridge

Festive Chia Seed Porridge
Serves 1

1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (I was a slacker & used Pacific boxed milk from WF)
3 tablespoons chia seeds
small handful goji berries
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1/2 honey crisp apple, chopped (any variety you like is fine)
1/4 cup fresh pomegranate seeds
ground cinnamon 

Mix together the almond milk, chia seeds and goji berries in a small mixing bowl. Cover and let sit for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent clumping of the seeds. This can also be done before going to bed, just put the mixture into the refrigerator and it will be ready wen you are for breakfast. Before serving, add in the hemp seeds, apple chunks, pom seeds and a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired. Enjoy!!
