Grape Chia Smoothie (scd, paleo, vegan)

In my humble opinion anyone can make a fruit smoothie taste good. If you put nothing but fruit and ice in a blender there is a 99% chance that it is going to turn out decent. That's an actual statistic that you can quote me on. The trickiest and most healthful parts of smoothie making? Adding vegetables and protein and still having it palatable. After some kitchen experiments I arrived at this concoction. I like it, I think you will too:


1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1 large frozen banana
1/2 small zucchini
1/2 medium apple
1 cup frozen grapes
1 cup ice


Put all ingredients in a Vitamix blender in said order.
Blend on high for about a minute, using the tamper to press ingredients into blades if necessary.

*FYI the Vitamix Fall Special is still on: From today through November, you can purchase a Certified Reconditioned Vitamix Standard blender starting at $299. This is a $30 savings off the normal reconditioned price and $200+ off a new Vitamix blender. These reconditioned blenders come with a new container and a 5 year warranty and go through a 13 point inspection. As always, use my code 06-006499 at checkout for free ground shipping!
