This smoothie is best if you soak the chia seeds in the almond milk for 30 minutes before blending. Or soak overnight in the fridge.

You will need a protein powder to make this recipe. There are many options available, however a low sugar, high protein one is ideal. See below for more information on choosing protein powders. Many are sweetened with stevia, which usually provides enough sweetness without adding extra. If your powder is unflavoured you might like to add vanilla essence, cinnamon, or stevia powder or drops to improve the taste. You can also add sweeter fruits (mango, pineapple etc) if the extra sugars are not a concern for you.

About Protein Powders
Look for a protein powder that is > 70% protein. You can work this out by looking at the Nutrition Information Panel (NIP) – this is the table of numbers on the packet. Find the ‘per 100g’ column and move down to see how many grams of protein there are. About 80g of protein per 100g means it is 80% protein. If you don’t want to use whey concentrate/isolate powder, other options are rice, pea, soy.and collagen powders. Talk with your health practitioner about a suitable option for you.
