Pear and Chia Seed Smoothie

Another great way to get your nutrients in your morning smoothie is with this delightful concoction. With Vitamin C, fibre, essential fatty acids and protein to keep you smiling and your appetite satisfied for hours.



2 Small Pears

1 cup Soy or Almond milk

2 tbs Chia seeds

¼ tsp Ginger Powder



Soak your seeds in some of the milk. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop up your pear (with skin) and transfer to a blender along with the rest of the milk.

Add the ginger powder.

When the seeds have softened and have become more jelly like, (picture below) add them to the blender.

Process the ingredients until you have smoothie consistency.


You can also keep some of the mixture and leave in the fridge to make a more pudding like dessert for later.
