Chia Seeds and Strawberry Milkshake [vegan]

 

Strawberry Milkshake and Chia for Health

 

Strawberry milkshake is surely a classic in its group although probably everyone prepares it slightly differently: some add cream, some – ice cream; some use very ripe bananas, some – frozen bananas. For a very long time, I prepared it as either a treat/snack or – sometimes – as an accompaniment to breakfast.

This time, I wanted it to be a wholesome breakfast and that is why I added chia seeds to my more-or-less usual ingredients. Why was chia supposed to make the difference? You may remember from one of my previous posts that chia seeds are not only nutritious but also an excellent source of dietary fiber. Additionally, these seeds are weight-loss friendly because:

  • due to a pretty high (for a plant food) content of proteins – approx. 16%, they reduce appetite, and
  • since chia can absorb up to 10-12 times its weight in water, it becomes gel-like, expanding in your stomach making you feel fuller, so you want to eat fewer calories.

That way when you have this milkshake in the morning, you can be sure that not only you have a delicious and nutritious start to your day, but also you will not feel hungry for a few hours. And did I mention it takes only a few minutes to make it?
