What a delightful smoothie this is! The pecans really pack this smoothie with a nutritional punch. They are mineral-rich and are a great source of Vitamin E. Pecans also contain antioxidant compounds that help the body remove toxic oxygen-free radicals and thus, protect the body from diseases, cancers and infections. Cinnamon can reduce inflammation and lower blood sugar levels and cholesterol. The chia seeds are loaded with a omega-3's, essential fatty acids, protein, and fiber. Feel free to add hemp seeds and flax seeds too! For the non-dairy milk, I recommend coconut milk. The strawberries can be either fresh or frozen. This smoothie is fantastic in the morning, and satisfying enough as an after-dinner dessert smoothie!
