A Coconut & Blueberry Super Smoothie and a Blueberry Chia & Banana Smoothie

I’ve recently developed a new found appreciation of smoothies. Ever since the realization that they actually fill you up, I’ve started playing around with flavors and combinations and discovered the possibilities are endless. So, if you’re ever a little pressed for time but still want a clean and healthy start to the day, these smoothies are a fast and delicious way to jam pack your morning full of goodness. The first is from The Green Kitchen and the second is by yours truly. The addition of Chia seeds works wonders not only in helping to fill you up, but Chia has the richest combined source of Omega 3, Protein, Fibre and Antioxidants found in any natural food. How’s that for a kick start to the day? xx
