My Name Is Spice

Strawberry and Chia Smoothie

Imogen Taylor - Tuesday, February 04, 2020
I was never a fan of breakfast; morning just seemed too early to be putting food in my body. But a vegan's choice of breakfast is kind of like dessert-time! Between the beautiful and nutritious Acai Bowl, the gut-stabilising Chia Parfait, home-made granola, and the vitamin packed smoothie - the Vegan Breakfast has really come into its own.

I have made today's smoothie with strawberries, white chia seed (soaked in almond milk, with vanilla extract and honey), goji berries, banana, agave syrup, 1 tsp maca per person, and a pinch of Celtic sea salt.
Blitz everything but the soaking chia seeds together in a high speed blender with some more almond milk, till well amalgamated. then combine this mixture with the chia mixture.
This is so nutritious; the goji berries are dense with vitamin C and amino acids, and the chia seeds are a good source of protein, fiber, iron, calcium, and fatty acids..

N.B. Please excuse the oversized photos; I havent used this blog for some time and I've forgotten how to scale them!!!
