Creamy vegan tri-berry smoothie

This combo is an old standby, and it combines my favorite smoothie berries: strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. The chia seeds and almonds make it a bit creamy. I like to include the orange because it’s juicy and cheap. And the baby spinach adds a very mild-tasting green, for the leafy green goodness. You can easily substitute in other mild ingredients (such as apples or carrots). The berries are the major contributor to flavor.

2 tbsp chia seeds
handful of raw almonds (~20)
6 oz water
1 orange
handful of frozen raspberries
4 frozen strawberries
handful of frozen blueberries
handful of baby spinach
4 ice cubes

Toss ’em in, blend ’em up. It’s super convenient to use frozen berries because they’re always ready to use. You can get a premixed berry mixture, but I prefer to buy them separately so that I can get more variety in flavor by changing the ratios or leaving out one kind of berry entirely. I used peeled raw soaked almonds, though you can safely use unsoaked raw almonds.

Update: Other things to add to this include red cabbage, cinnamon, or other nuts, like walnuts.
