Anti-inflammatory Chia seed milk

Anti-inflammatory Chia seed milk

  • This is by far our favorite  anti-inflammatory almond and Chia seed milk recipe.
  • It is easy, fast and you control the ingredients.
  • Almond milk is a great alternative to dairy milk and a great base component for any smoothie.
  • Almonds are powerhouses when it comes to health benefits and are gluten-free and low in carbs. A study from the University of Toronto suggests that eating almonds, reduces inflammation by about the same level as taking a first-generation statin drug.
    The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that  eating almonds not only lowers cholesterol levels, but also C-reactive protein levels, a key marker of inflammation and an independent risk factor for heart disease. Almonds help reduce inflammation of blood vessels.
  • Chia seeds have an impressive nutritional profile. This is a potent combo.
  • Arthritis sufferers have reported less pain and inflammation after taking Chia seeds. The high concentration of omega-3 helps lubricate joints. Omega-3s are converted into prostaglandins which are known to have both pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Blend:
  • 2 cups of raw almond milk
  • 2 tbps of chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract or 1 tbsp of vanilla powder
  • 1 tbsp of organic raw honey
  • Make sure all ingredients are well mixed and form a creamy texture
  • Refrigerate immediately.
  • The almond milk can keep up to 1 full week.
  • Enjoy!
