Strawberries & blackberries are beneficial in so many ways!

These berries contain vitamin C and are rich in the mineral manganese, which are essential for protecting your body’s tissue from oxygen-related damage. So go ahead and keep snackin’ on them! 🙂

This afternoon I made a cheery chia berry smoothie for snack and want to share it with you.

  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of strawberries

  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk

  3. Pour smoothie into a glass.
  4. Let smoothie sit for a few minutes (3-5 mins) for chia seeds to expand to that gelatin-like substance and then enjoy!
