    CHIA SEED SHAKE
    2 cups unsweetened almond milk
    2 tablespoons chia seeds
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Powdered or liquid stevia to sweeten

    Stir chia seeds into almond milk in a glass and let sit 15 minutes, to allow the chia seeds to absorb some of the liquid and begin to create a "gel." Stir in the rest of the ingredients, making sweet to suit your taste—this shake helps give you lustrous hair and strong nails.

    RAINFOREST ACAI SMOOTHIE
    2 cups unsweetened almond milk
    1 packet frozen acai
    1/2 tablespoons raw cacao (optional)
    Stevia to taste

    Using a good blender, blend the acai and almond milk at low speed until you've broken down the acai, then move to a higher speed. Once it is smooth, use the stevia. Add the 1/2 of a banana to make a denser snack or dessert, this smoothie helps battle dry winter skin.

    1 inch of ginger, peeled and sliced
    Filtered or spring water
