Monster Milk from weelicious.com

This is a guest post from Amanda Chantal Bacon, Founder of Moon Juice.

Monster Milk is fun kid stuff. My 4 year old Rohan and his friends love to join in the making of a monster from the moon. Having kids scoop the chia seeds into water and stir them as they bloom. Checking on them with curious poking fingers is a great science experiment. Then letting kids pour the monster bumps into the green solution and wiggle around with a straw and feel in their mouth is so much fun. Especially fun for moms to be able to watch kids giggle with delight as they are drinking green juice and loading up on plant protein, good fats and omegas for their brain.

    O.K. I clicked on 'Moon Juice' but all I find is products to buy, not to make green juice.

    I'm curious how long the bloomed chia seeds will keep in the fridge. Can you bloom a larger batch and then use throughout the week?
