Gelling Chia Seeds
Apple Pie Smoothie
Start the recipe by gelling the chia seeds. It's easy! Simply combine the chia seeds and the water in a tall container. Stir well and allow to sit for at least 10 minutes. As the mixture sits, it will transform into a gel-like substance. The remaining gelled chia seeds can be stored in the fridge in an air tight container for up to two weeks.
After you've set the chia seeds to gel, start on the rest of the recipe.
Heat the butter or coconut oil over medium high heat. Add the apples, the first tablespoon of agave nectar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and kosher salt.
Cook for 5 minutes until apples are softened just a bit. Remove the apples from the skillet and cool to room temperature. This may take up to 20 minutes or so.
Once apples are cool, add the apple mixture, yogurt, chia seeds and the other tablespoon of agave nectar to a blender and blend until smooth.
Serve right away or store in the refrigerator (up to overnight).
