As I have mentioned a couple of times on this blog I love making a fresh smoothie for my breakfast or little pick me up after the gym and today I thought I would share three smoothies I have really been enjoying recently.
Coffe Chia Smoothie
This is a Madeline Shaw recipe and is a really good drink to have before or after hitting the gym for an energy boost.
- 150ml of almond milk
- 1 banana
- 1 shot of cold coffee
- 2 tbsp of chia seeds
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract or vanilla powder
Place everything except the seeds in the blender and blend. Poor into a glass then stir in the chia seeds. Let this mix sit for 10 minutes stirring every few minutes. Add ice and drink.
Chia, Oat, Date and Almond Milk
Another post-gym smoothie from Oh She Glows packed with chia seeds which is a meal in itself because of the oats and chia seeds.
- 250ml almond milk
- 2 tbsp oats
- 2-3 dates, pitted
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp almond or peanut butter
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 4-5 ice cubes
In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until smooth.
This 101 Cookbooks recipe is the most amazing recipe for a green smoothie, so fresh and delicious!
- 2 cups kale (I like to use spinach)
- 1 banana
- 1 cup pineapple (I also like to use mango or peaches)
- 1 tbsp peanut or almond butter
- 1/2 cup almond milk
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and pour into glasses when it has reached a smooth consistency.
