Healthy Smoothie

Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to add extra fruits, vegetables, fibre and protein to your diet.  Having chopped, frozen fruits and vegetables, and nuts and seeds on hand make smoothies a quick, simple, healthy snack or meal to enjoy at home or on-the-go.  Here are a few of my favourites.

1/2 tbsp chia seeds

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other nut milk)

1 cup water

Place everything in a blender and mix well.  Top with granola and dark chocolate, if desired, and enjoy!
