Step 1 -Soak Chia Seeds

In a small bowl, soak the chia seeds in 2 tablespoons of water for about 10 minutes until they swell up and become gel-like. This helps in thickening the smoothie.

Step 2 - Blend Ingredients

In a blender, combine the soaked chia seeds, unsweetened almond milk, coconut cream, ground cinnamon, cardamom powder, and almond butter.

Step 3 - Add Sweetener & Salt (Optional)

Add Stevia and a pinch of Himalayan pink salt according to your taste preference 

Step 4 - Add Ice Cubes & Blend Until Smooth

Blend all the ingredients until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. For a chilled smoothie, add ice cubes before blending.

Step 5 -Serve Immediately

Take small portions of the mixture and roll them into balls. If the mixture is too dry, add a little more almond milk.

Step 6 - Chill

Pour the smoothie into a glass and enjoy immediately.
