Bok Choy Smoothie

Bok Choy Smoothie

1 Cup water
2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
4-5 Frozen peach or pear slices
Half-cup or more frozen blueberries
5 frozen strawberries, or to taste
(Cherries are also delicious)
6 Bok Choy leaves, lightly steamed

The finished smoothie has no cabbage-y flavor that I can detect, but since taste buds are different, you may need to experiment a little to find a berryโ€“toโ€“bok choy ratio that works for you.
