Berry and Chai Seed Smoothie
|Serves:||Serves 1 (contains approx 230 kcal)|
|125g frozen or fresh berries (use a mixture or one type)|
|1 mandarin (or 70g tinned in own juice which has been drained)|
|2 small carrots|
|10g baby spinach leaves|
|60g Greek style natural yoghurt (4 tbsp - 3% fat)|
|90ml almond milk (6 tbsp in total)|
|2 tsp chai seeds (10g)|
|large handful of ice cubes|
If using frozen berries FSAI (Food Safety Authority of Ireland) now recommends to boil them first in a saucepan of boiling water for 1 minute before draining and using. Then put them into a NutriBullet or similar blender (liquidizer). If you are using fresh berries then there is no need to cook them first.
If using a fresh mandarin peel off the skin and separate into segments. Add the mandarin to the berries.
Peel the carrots and roughly chop – you’ll need 80g in total and add to the fruit with the spinach, yoghurt, almond milk and chai seeds. Add the ice and blend in bursts until smooth. Pour into a tall glass to serve.
Layer up vegetables and fruit in goblet of your blender and then add in the ice along with almond milk just before blending.
