Chia seeds are an amazing superfood, but they are widely ignored when it comes to cooking and baking. They are packed with omega 3s – essential fatty acids as well as protein, fiber and antioxidants! They smell like fresh back tea, but don’t have any taste! It’s like a magic secret ingredient! I’m still working on incorporating them in my recipes but smoothies are a great start! You can add a tablespoon to any kind of smoothie, but here’s my recipe:
1 tbsp of Chia Seeds
1 cup of coconut milk strawberry ice cream
2 tbsp of almond, coconut or rice milk
1 tsp of lemon juice
1 cup of mixed berries
Handful of ice cubes
1. Cut the banana in small chunks to make it easier on your food processor or blender.
2. Measure out the ingredients and pour them into the food processor or blender. Add the chia seeds last so they don’t get lost under the blades.
3. Blend the ingredients until it is evenly mixed. If it’s still too thick, add a little more milk.
4. Enjoy the tasty and filling smoothie for breakfast as a great start to your day!
