Plum Chia Seed Smoothie

Beautifully colored and surprisingly sweet, this smoothie is sure to become one of your new go-to recipes. Chia seed is packed with omega-3 fatty acids that can help raise good cholesterol, a benefit that helps protect against heart disease. They’re known for their gel-like expansion that, when ingested, can help you feel satiated and full for longer periods of time. The soluble fiber in plums produces a similar effect, an excellent characteristic that can help prevent overeating and weight gain.
