A berrylicious chia seed smoothie that is perfect for a speedy breakfast on the go or as a healthier afternoon snack to boost your energy levels.

Now you all know that I’m a green smoothie girl, but every once in a while I like to change things up and experiment.  I just love this smoothie, it’s so creamy that has the texture of a milkshake and if you love berries then I know that you will love it too.  A few weeks ago I decided to make a frozen berry smoothie bowl for breakfast and promised myself that I would share the recipe on the blog – well here it is!

This version of the smoothie is a little different because it’s not served in a bowl and it has one crucial ingredient that wasn’t in the original recipe…chia seeds.  Ever since making my vegan pina colada chia pudding, I’ve been obsessed and love adding a chia nutritional boost to my smoothies.

  • 2 tbsp porridge oats

Instructions
  1. Pour all of the ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth.

Another ingredient that I would love to try in this smoothie next time is a pinch of dried chilli flakes – just enough to give it a bit of a kick and to add an edge to the sweet flavour of the berries.  It’s definitely wouldn’t be a blow your head off kind of hot at all, but a subtle background heat that I think really works well.  Have you ever tried chilli dark chocolate, yum!?

Smoothies are seriously versatile and this mix has become a favourite of mine. They’re something quick and delicious in the morning when you’re in a rush and a healthier afternoon pick me up if you’re feeling low on energy.
