Smoothies w/ Salba Smart ~ Giveaway {CLOSED}

Oh vey! I'm so sorry for being MIA! I have been under the weather and have been trying to rest so hopefully I will be better soon. I apologize for the delay in getting this post up!
This month, Salba Smart asked us to make three smoothie recipes. I was given a $25 gift certificate to Whole Foods to shop for ingredients. Unfortunately, the closest Whole Foods is an hour away from me and with being sick and all, I just haven't gotten there... yet! I didn't want to make you all wait on me, though. So I decided to share one of my favorite recipes and start the giveaway. Don't worry, though, I will be back with more delicious smoothie recipes, so stay tuned!
Smoothies are great for so many reasons: they’re easy to make, a quick breakfast on-the-go, and they make it easy to add greens, fruits and veggies all in one meal. Plus, it’s just about the simplest way to add Salba Chia nutrition! Because chia seeds are so tiny, they’re easy to mix right in. As swimsuit season quickly approaches, there’s no better time to start making super smoothies!
Here’s a little more information on Salba Chia:
325% more fiber than oatmeal
800% more Omega-3 (ALA) than salmon
30% more antioxidants than blueberries
1500% more magnesium than broccoli
200% more potassium than bananas
Can you say SUPERFOOD?!

There are endless possibilities when adding Salba Smart chia to your diet. Smoothies are one of my very favorite ways to get in my greens & chia!
This month, I was challenged to make smoothie recipes using Salba Chia seeds, Earthbound Farm baby spinach, and Stonyfield Organic Yogurt. Since I am doing my best to avoid animal products, I left out the yogurt. Feel free to add it to your smoothies for a creamy texture (or just add frozen bananas like I did!)
My favorite recipe will not be a surprise if you follow me on Instagram, I make this quite often!
I'll call this one Island Oasis, as it reminds me of the tropical weather ;)
Juice of 4 oranges (or tangerines, I use my manual citrus juicer)
2 handfuls of Earthbound Farm spinach
1 cup frozen mango 
1 frozen banana
1 cup pineapple 
1 tbsp Salba Smart chia seeds
Mix all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high. Add more frozen fruit or water until at desired consistency.
