It’s A creamy, thick smoothie filled with ground oats, fresh mixed berries and chia seeds. Healthy and satisfying!

As well as my current obsession with chia seeds.  until the last few months when I started noticing recipes on other blogs and read on the internet.check one more recipe Triple Berry Chia Pudding

Ingredients

1/2 Cup quick oats

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 Cup of mixed berries fresh (Strawberries, Raspberries &bluberries)

1 Cup of Unsweetened almond milk or Regular milk

1 tbsp honey or any sweetener optional

Instructions

Blend everything in a blender till smooth.except for chia seeds .pour blended mixture in glass .add chia seeds & keep aside for 15 minutes and drink.

Tips:-One can pre-soaked chia seeds with 2-3 tbsp of water for 15-20 minutes or add chia seeds directly with other ingredients too.

Adjust for sweetness with honey, I didn’t add at all. the chia seeds will make the smoothie get very thick if you let it sit for a while before drinking, so be sure to enjoy the smoothie right after you blend it up!

Please consult your dietician before using chia seeds.
