Detox Smoothie: The russian Pink-Dream with chia seeds
Todays Detox Smoothie “The Pink Dream” is a recipe from our SpaOteli (SpaDreams Russia) Team. It’s a very delicious and healthy smoothie with the superfood “Chia Seeds“.
The Aztecs knew about the healthy effect of these little seeds. Chia Seeds have about 8 times more Omega-3 acids as salmon and about 15 times more dietary fiber as whole grain rice! And thats not all: they are also full of calcium, vitamin C, folic acid, minerals, magnesium and zinc. AND they can help you to lose weight, because you get less hungry when you add chia seeds to your diet.
Here is the recipe for this great Detox Smoothie:
- ½ cup of blackberries
- ½ cup raspberries
- ½ cup of green tea (cold)
- ¾ cup plain yogurt
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- strawberries and agave juice (to taste)
To get the all the healthy components out of the chia seeds, you should mix them with approx 3-4 tbsp water and allow them to soak for at least 15 minutes – overnight would be better.
Make the cup of green tea some time before making the smoothie, so it can cool down.
Mix the chia seeds and the green tea with the berries and the yogurt into the blender and mix it. If you like you can add strawberries and agave juice.
And now enjoy and feel healthy!
