    1. Hi Robin, Sorry for the slow reply! Do you have a health food shop near where you live? You will probably find the chia seeds and flax seed mix there. If not then you can order them off Amazon -
      Chia seeds - http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=chia+seeds
      Flaxseed - http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_sc_0_4?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=flax+seed&sprefix=flaz%2Caps%2C303&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aflax+seed
      Hope that helps!

  8. I love your suggestion to let the mango soften a bit before blending. I make a similar banana/mango smoothie, but it often ends up so frozen I get a brain freeze when I try to drink it. I'm also going to have to try the addition of coconut water. Pinned! (Stopping by from Snickerdoodle Sunday.)

    1. Hi Jessica, Chia seeds are great, and as they absorb so much water they are great for thickening drinks up too. xox
