Chia Berry Smoothie
This drink is packed with Omega 3, antioxidants and protein. It’s great for a mid-week breakfast on the run or an afternoon treat. Berries, Acai or Maqui powder gives this smoothie its bright and vibrant colour as well as its delicious taste.
1½ cup (375ml) milk of choice
½ cup yoghurt
1 cup (130g) frozen raspberries
1 cup (150g) halved frozen strawberries
1 banana (chopped)
1–2 tbsp honey or agave nectar (or to taste)
1 tsp acai powder or maqui powder
2 tbsp protein powder
1–2 tbsp white Chia seeds
1 tbsp Chia oil (optional)
1 tbsp Chia bran (optional)
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high for 1–2 minutes until well combined. Check to taste if more sweetener or liquid is required and blend again. Serve immediately and sprinkle with Chia seeds. Smoothie can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Tip: Freeze the fruit at least the evening before or use fresh fruit but add ice cubes to make the smoothie thick and creamy.
