If you are looking for a pick-me-up to start your day with real zest and a blast of goodness, I can whole-heartedly recommend this smoothie. Stuffed full of fabulously nourishing ingredients, it also tastes deceptively delicious!
What you need…
200g frozen summer fruits, defrosted
250g Alpro soya ‘yogurt’, vanilla flavour
1dessertspoon Chia seeds
2 teaspoons Manuka honey
What to do…
To make your summer fruits smoothie with Chia seeds, simply chuck the lot in your blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a couple of glasses and look smugly at one another as you take in all this goodness whilst drinking something imitating a delectable dessert!
You can swap my choice of soya yogurt for your own personal favourite – I just find that cutting down on dairy works better for me.
What are Chia seeds…?
For the uninitiated, they’re promoted as a super food. . They contain the highest levels of omega 3 and essential amino acids found in the plant kingdom. They are also high in fibre, calcium, ion, selenium and zinc. They are also rich in antioxidants and protein – what’s not to like?!
