Pregnancy Super Food!
Hidden in this delicious pregnancy smoothie is one of my favorite pregnancy super foods – chia seeds!
Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.
My favorite way to eat chia seeds is either in a smoothie or in a yogurt like the picture above. Really, the options are endless. Chia seeds expand when wet and create a fun tecture to food. Have fun with this one!
In this recipe, instead of milk I used cashew milk, however, feel free to substitute any another “milk” that you prefer! Almond, cow’s milk or even coconut milk sound delicious. Which is your favorite?
I chose cashew milk because it gives my body a break from dairy products, but is one of the more thicker nut milks which kept this smoothie nice and creamy. Yum!
The smoothie is best served immediately, however, you can always store leftovers in the fridge with a tight fitting lid. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
