Pretty Purple Smoothie

10 May 2016

Smoothies will win everytime. First, they are quick and easy to make. Second, they are super-nutritious. Third, they often make a meal in themselves. And finally, they are filling yet usually low-cal.

So, we’re giving you a colourful recipe for a smoothie that combines the goodness of kale and chia seeds. Kale is a rich source of Vitamins A, B6, C, K, folate and dietary minerals including magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium and phosphorous. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and are popularly used in smoothies, breakfast cereals, energy bars, bread and yoghurt.

If you can lay your hands on some peacock kale, you’ll end up with a “green” smoothie that’s an amazing purple colour. Combined with fruit and fruit juice, you’ll get a smoothie that works well for vegans, looks great and taste simply yum.

Go for it!
