Basic smoothie | V GF

VEGAN | GLUTEN-FREE | DAIRY-FREE | NUT-FREE | NO ADDED SWEETENERS

INGREDIENTS
2 x medium bananas
1 x tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 cup water or coconut water (you may not need all of this)

OPTIONAL – don’t add all of these together!
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla powder (I don’t recommend vanilla extract as it is full of sugar)
Handful of berries
1 x avocado
1 handful spinach leaves (we call this one a “Shrek” smoothie & the boys love it)
1 x tablespoon cacao (I recommend cacao over cocoa as it is less processed & more nutrient dense)
Flesh of 1 x mango
2 x tablespoons natural or Greek yoghurt (check no added sugar)

METHOD
1. Peel 2 x bananas & chop into quarters. Put in the freezer in a Tupperware container or snap lock bag. Leave to freeze overnight
2. Soak 1 tablespoon of chia seeds in 3 tablespoons of water. Stir occasionally. Within 10 minutes it should form a “gel” texture. If you don’t let it mix this long it will stick all over your blender!
3. Throw bananas & chia gel in the blender. Have 1/4 cup water nearby that you can slowly pour in to get your desired consistency – either thick like ice-cream that you can eat with a spoon, or thinner that is easier to drink. Blend until all combined.
4. Pour into a glass & drink immediately. Say no to plastic straws!
