Healthy Smoothie Jar


I posted this baby on instagram the other day so I thought I'd let you know how to make it. Super simple...

Ingredients
1 kiwi
1 cup frozen mixed berries {I get the bag from Trader Joe's}
5 fresh strawberries
2 tbsp. chia seeds
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 drops of liquid stevia
1 mango {cut into cubes and frozen}
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
water

Directions
-Peel and cut kiwi into thin slices. Stick the slices on the inside wall of a dry glass jar.
-Blend the frozen mixed berries with 5 fresh strawberries. Add a few tbsp's of water if the texture is too thick. Pour or spoon the blended berries into the glass jar.
-Mix chia seeds with vanilla and 1/2 cup of water. Add 3 drops of liquid stevia. Let the chia seeds absorb the water and then add to the jar {this can be made ahead of time if you don't want to wait}. Be careful not to mix the layers.
-Washout the leftover blended berries from the blender and then add frozen mango chunks and lemon juice. Blend. Use water if needed to reach your desired consistency. Add to the jar.
-Top with cocoa nibs and fruit. 

It was really fun to make + a great way to get your daily servings of fruit :)
