Berry Yoghurt Smoothie

smoothies-4

There were three things I had considered doing this afternoon –  1) attempting to make peanut butter cups, 2) make smoothies, or 3) try on dresses in Juliette Hogan. I ended up being persuaded towards number 2 (*cough* Tim *cough*), however it was a good opportunity to experiment with a few new ingredients – namely chia seeds, coconut oil, and cocoa nibs (#superfoodsunday, obviously).

This smoothie is surprisingly sweet, and very filling. Perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. The cocoa nibs give it a bitter-sweet cocoa hit (though the nibs I sprinkled on top were rather difficult to drink using a straw… not recommended). To make, simply combine the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth – at least a full minute to ensure the cocoa nibs are suitably crushed.

  1. Yum! I’d have to omit the yoghurt (perhaps add in some cashews and use a bit of almond or coconut milk) but such a good weekend immunity booster :)
