The Next-Morning Smoothie

Yesterday morning, I prepared a smoothie for my children & I and kept a full glass to make today’s pudding. A nice and fruity way to save some cash on family’s breakfasts thanks to chia seeds.

Chia seeds are real game changers. Full of nutrients, proteins and fibers, they share their fair amount of Omega-3 fatty acids with us in every meal. It is a mucilaginous seed once plunged into water, juice or plant-based milk. Thanks to that, you can make chia pudding with almost every juice.

This one was made with yesterday’s smoothie which contained:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 carrot
  • 4 oranges
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 mug of quinoa milk (a nice try as I thought it was full of proteins and nutrients but I’ve read this article and I am seriously thinking of making my own dairy-free milk)
  • 1/3 vanilla pod
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1 apple
  • 20cl of coconut water (only because I had some left in the fridge)
  • 1 mango

I blended all the ingredients and saved some in a jar for today. All I added was a handful of chia seeds. I covered it and put it in the fridge. It created a gel most people call a chia pudding. I served a few spoons of it and some home-made granola.

Hope you’ll enjoy your breakfast too!

Have a nice day!
