Chocolate Chia Breakfast Smoothie

chia recipes Mar 11, 2020

One of my favoritist ways to start a day, this is delicious but healthy recipe combining the power of chia with the regular benefits of a smoothie.     Served w nuts, cocoa nibs, raspberries, seeds on top. Absolutely fantastic.

 

 

 

 INGREDIENTS:

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup plain kerfir (this is a drinkable yogurt)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp chia (soaked overnight) seeds
  • 1/3 scoop protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • drops liquid stevia, to taste (optional)
  • 1 medium-size ripe banana, frozen
  • 2-3 ice cubes (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

1.Soak chia * with milk (I use coconut), kefir, vanilla overnight (to allow the seeds to absorb the liquid and to expand before being consumed).

2.Morning - Place all ingredients in your blender to combine well.

3.If the smoothie is too thick, add an extra splash of milk or have as a smoothie bowl. Both are delicious. In bowl add desired toppings, and enjoy!

Notes

* Soak first 3 ingredients the night before and blend with remaining ingredients next morning.
