Recipe: Nopal, cucumber, parsley, celery, lemon and flax/chia smoothie

  1. First, we’ll put the flax or chia seeds in a cup filled with water.
  2. Then, we need to cover the cup and wait 2-8 hours for the seeds to soak and become easier to digest.
  3. Next, we can start preparing the juice, for which we’ll need a clean environment. This includes: hands, utensils, appliances and ingredients. Note: Green leafy vegetables, such as parsley and celery, may have large amounts of bacteria.
