I have a new favorite concoction that I have been whipping up. Makes a great breakfast, lunch or snack when you need a pick me up.
But it is filled with all sorts of nutritional goodness!
I make it in the Magic Bullet, but a blender would work just fine too.
Start by adding as much “milk” as the size of the drink you are going to have.
I used almond milk.
Then add a spoonful or two of Chia seeds. These are a great high protein, fill you up, kind of thing!
Then I give them a quick whiz in the bullet and then put them back in the fridge for at least half and hour, but the longer the better.
Chia is better when left in a liquid for an amount of time because they start to expand and get frothy, which I guess is why they also fill you up and help with “fibre like duties”!
Then after you’ve let it sit awhile, and for that matter chill, you can add a spoon or two of pure coco ( not the sugary stuff!!).
And a spoon or two of Mesquite powder ( read up on Mesquite, it’s a Super food!) that tastes like malt as in a “Malted milk” which was a favorite of mine as a child at the Dairy Queen.
So then whiz these up and you have a very enjoyable beverage that is the next best thing to a grown up version of my childhood favorite.
Give it a try, not only does it taste great…….but it’s great for you!!
