What a busy time it’s been for me lately. Getting settled for a little while, and starting the kids with their home schooling. This home schooling thing has been a little bit of a challenge (not for the kids, just for me getting my head around the back to basics). Now that we are getting into the swing of things I can start to test out and post up some more recipes.
I think I’ve kept you waiting long enough now for a new post so I should get on with it.
WOW what a great find on the Internet, I never thought of using dates and chia seeds in a smoothie but it dose turn out quite delicious. Dates add the sweetness that is nice in a smoothie, and also adds a little bit of thickness. Chia seeds adds thickness to the smoothie and acts a little like putting in a dollop of ice cream for body and thickness but without the dairy. Chia seeds are also full of omega-3, antioxidants, fibre, calcium and protein. So why wouldn’t you add them to your next smoothie.
I did change this recipe around a bit to suit our tastes.
Add to blender
1/2 – 1 cup frozen berries or 2 bananas
8 pitted dates, soaked to soften them
1 tbsp Chia Seeds (you can grind them in a coffee grinder if you wish)
I put my milk and dates in a jug to soak at breakfast time. This way when I’m ready for a smoothie the smoothie is almost ready for me.
