Berry and Chia Pudding Smoothie

go site Order Tastylia Oral Strip Berry Layered Chia Pudding. Chia seeds transform into a delicious pudding-like texture when soaked in liquid. Take this superfood to the next level by layering it with delicious berry smoothie! A vegan and gluten-free recipe.

With Summer around the corner (hopefully!) it’s the perfect time to start making more refreshing smoothies. For me one of the best ways to enjoy a smoothie is to combine it with chia pudding. Chia seeds are one of those foods that definitely deserve the ‘superfood’ status. For such a small seed, chia seeds contain some important nutrients.

The seeds are rich in minerals such as calcium and magnesium as well as being high in Omega-3 fatty acids. The combination of fat, protein and fibre means the seeds are digested relatively slowly, providing long, slow release of energy to keep blood-sugar levels stable. The perfect breakfast (or dessert of course)! 

Then there’s the toppings. We already know from my smoothie bowls how much I love throwing stuff on top of smoothies. I think since this craze took over Instagram, I haven’t been able to have a smoothie without some fancy toppings on it. I kept this one relatively simply with berries and buckwheat puffs but you could be as creative as you like.

I hope you enjoy…..
