This delicious smoothie is the perfect high protein post-workout fix with 30g of protein. I use chia seeds in so many of my meals and smoothies as they have so many health benefits being high in protein, fibre and antioxidants, as well as having few calories.
Chia seeds are an amazing source of protein for vegetarians and pescatarians like myself, containing 4.4g protein per 30g serving of seeds.
30g chia seeds
1 serving protein- I use Optimum Nutrition Lean Whey, Raspberry & White Chocolate flavour
One serving of this protein has 20g protein & only 98 cals
250ml coconut water / almond milk or your choice of liquid base
1 small handful of frozen raspberries
1. Simply blend all the ingredients together, and leave to stand for 20-30 mins as the chia seeds absorb the liquid base
2. Either serve your smoothie in a bowl or glass. For those of you with a real sweet tooth, sprinkle some roasted coconut shavings on top
