On a detox we still need healthy fats, protein and fiber! I used pea protein here because when you’re on a detox, it’s nice to choose the most easily digestible and gentle proteins possible. The chia seeds add fiber to keep you all sorts of regular and there’s plenty of sweetness from coconut and pear to make this an absolute crowd pleaser.
Makes about 3 cups
Blend all the ingredients except water until smooth. Then put the blender on slow an pour in water until it reaches desired consistency. You can make it so thick you’ll eat it with a spoon, or thin as a juice.
