Blueberry Chia Smoothie

I know that blueberries are absolutely amazing (masses of antioxidants, help reduce blood glucose levels and may even help to ward off Alzheimers and dementia).

So I thought if I teamed them with my other favourite superfood, chia seeds (bucketloads of Omega 3 fatty acids, protein and iron), I would be on to a nutrition-packed winner.

makes enough for 1 serve

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds (black or white)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • handful of baby spinach leaves

Method

  1. Start out by soaking the chia seeds in a jar with 1/4 cup water. After about 20 minutes, this will turn to a gel.
  2. Add two tablespoons of this gel to the blender and store the rest in the fridge. Add to smoothies or just eat a spoonful now and again, it’s perfectly pleasant and one of the nicest ways of getting Omega 3s into your diet.
  3. Add all the other ingredients to the blender and blitz until smooth.
