Strawberries are potent little packages of nutrition that protect your heart, increase good cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and guard against cancer. Rich in vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants, strawberries are the perfect low-calorie snack for weight watchers. The second main ingredient in this recipe is chia seeds. “Chia” means strength, and tradition suggests that these tiny seeds serve as a natural energy booster. Packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium, chia seeds are a great mid-day pick-me-up!
1/2 cup organic strawberries
1 cup almond or coconut mylk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 date (optional)
1/3 cup chia seeds (for thinner consistency use only 1/4 cup)
1 tbsp collagen powder
1 tsp tahini or choice of nut butter (optional)
Blend all the ingredients together omitting the chia seeds.
Whisk the chia seeds into the strawberry mixture and pour into a big bowl or individual smaller bowls.
Serve with fresh strawberries and coconut flakes.
