Summer Strawberry Goodness Smoothie
This strawberry and chia seed thickened smoothie is perfect for an afternoon snack, or even as dessert. I use white chia seeds for this recipe because I love a deep colour pink that goes "pop". But you could use black chia seeds, no problem.
Chia have Omega 3, potassium, fibre and they are an awesome
source of protein. So, they're a great go-to if you are vegetarian
or vegan, but they're good for everyone.
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
3 tablespoons yoghurt (I highly rate The Collective's vanilla
1 teaspoon of honey (I recommend True Honey 500+ Manuka
pinch of cinnamon
2 tablespoons of chia seeds (I recommend the Go Superfood white
organic chia seeds)
Place the milk, strawberries, yoghurt, honey and cinnamon into a
blender and mix until smooth and creamy. Then spoon in the chia
seeds and stir well (otherwise the chia seeds all sit and swell on
the bottom!) Leave this in the fridge for 20 minutes to let the
chia seeds plump up. Next, slurp it up and smile.
Optional extras: For an added antioxidant boost add 1 teaspoon
of Lifestream Essential Berries powder. Or if you want an extra
protein kick then add some Les Mills Good Protein.
