In the mood for a refreshing smoothie? Here is a recipe for a quick and easy strawberry smoothie with nutritious chia seeds. This super luscious smoothie is also gluten-free. Chia seed is an abundant source of omega fats, protein, antioxidants and dietary fiber. I like to use organic goat yogurt; feel free to use your favorite organic yogurt; sheep, cow, coconut…
Serves 3-4 for Breakfast or Snacks
2 cups organic strawberries
1 1/2 cups organic plain goat, sheep or cow yogurt
1 cup water
4 tablespoons organic maple syrup
1 tablespoon organic vanilla extract
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
* If using chia seeds for the chia seed powder, simply soak the chia seeds in the water for 5 minutes before adding it to the smoothie.
Swap other seasonal fruits or use frozen berries.
