A Healthy Breakfast

A wonderful Naturopath, seeking help from me, Dr. Powers, has returned the favor and recommended the following delicious breakfast shake:
1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk (or you can use the boxed coconut milk too)
1/4-1/2 cup water
1/2 banana (optional)
1/4 avacado (optional)
2 tbsp black chia seeds
2 tbsp green powder (Healthforce Nutritionals Vitamineral Green is my favorite, but any green powder will do.  I also like Green Vibrance.
1 tsp. chlorella (Healthforce)
1-2 tsp. mesquite powder (Earthcircle Organics- whole foods and Briarpatch carry this brand)
1-2 tsp. maca powder (Earthcircle Organics)
1-2 tsp. raw lucuma powder (any brand on the raw food health aisle)
1-2 tsp. carob powder
a little dash of sea salt, or 1/2 tsp. concentrated ionic minerals (Trace Minerals Research Group- Sunrise Nat’l Foods has this)
1 dropperful Butter Toffee Stevia- liquid- any health food store will have it
Blend on high for 30-45 seconds in a good blender.  You want the chia seeds to be completely smooth and broken down.  You can freeze the banana to make it thicker and colder, or add ice cubes.  I tend to not like it with ice during the winter.  Hope you like it!
PS:  I grind the Chia Seeds in a coffee grinder first…
