One of My Morning Smoothies - Mixed Berry, Chia Seeds, Ginger Rooibos Tea

This is when my sunny San Francisco mug comes to brighten up my morning even more!

Post-workout shaking just adds spice and fun to the process.

Ingredients for today: just added the following in the vertical mixer tall plastic cup - a blender works just fine as well - and mixed until all the ingredients were smoothly blended:

- 1 cup pureed apple
- 1 cup Ginger Lemon Rooibos tea (freshly made and chilled before used for the smoothie)
- 1 cup mixed berries (from frozen)
- 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
- 4 tbsp Chia seeds (ground and sprouted)

Now the only thing needed: a drinking straw in happy colors! (and by the way, National Drinking Straw Day is celebrated annually on January 3rd, in the US!)

Such a treat - ~ 280 calories, 9 g Total Fat, 1g Saturated Fat, 0 mg Cholesterol, 29 mg Sodium, 43 g Total Carb, 16.7 g Dietary Fiber, 23g Sugars, and 7g Protein.
