Pick me up smoothie
Could this purple bit of goodness be any prettier? Not only will a smoothie offer one of the easiest and most versatile way to add goodness to a healthy diet, I have found that with kids, it is such a practical on-the-go way to supplement their diets with essential vitamins and minerals they may lack. Packed full of seasonal ingredients they have become part of our daily life.
2 cups blackberries
1 tablespoon chia seeds
4 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
1 1/2 cups of Kefir
1 teaspoon raw honey
- In a nutribullet, or other blender, add all the ingredients and blend until smooth.
- The balance of kefir and greek yoghurt can be altered to suit your preferred way of enjoying smoothies
The Health Boost Tip
Blackberries, like most berries are low in calories but packed full of nutrients.
They are loaded in Vitamin C and are also rich in vitamins A, E, K, and B vitamins, as well as antioxidants. But that's not all, minerals such as copper, manganese, magnesium, potassium are also present and provide a valuable boost for healthy brain function.
Including kefir in this smoothie, has been inspired by recent gut health issues suffered by one of our husbands! Not a bad thing to include in your children's diet to boost their immunity for back to school. More on that subject very soon!
