Coconut, Banana & Berry Smoothie with Chia seeds
I am not exactly a smoothie person. I would so much rather be eating fruit than drinking them but every now and then I just don’t have time for breakfast and making a smoothie takes mere seconds. I made this healthy smoothie recipe a while ago and really, really liked the final result. The smoothie was creamy, slightly sweet, a little tart and very filling. I loved the addition of chia seeds which added loads of fibre and protein and kept me full and satisfied until lunch time. Using frozen berries instead of fresh berries meant I didn’t have to add ice but if you don’t have frozen berries, feel free to substitute with whatever you have on hand. Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries all work well.
