|1:Wash produce thoroughly, scrubbing the beet(s) to remove the dirt. Remove the top ends of the beet(s).|
|2:Peel the kiwi, then weigh out the ingredients.|
|3:Prepare the rest of the produce by removing the green tops from the strawberries and picking the grapes from the stems.|
|4:If you have a juice press, grind the produce together and press. If you have a standard juicer, juice all of the produce together.|
|5:Add the chia seeds to your empty glass (or bottle) and pour the juice on top of the seeds. Let it sit for about ten minutes for the chia to hydrate fully before drinking or serving.|
If mint stems are tender and green, you can use them as well as the leaves.
