All calorie calculations are an estimate. Calorie-content varies according to product and accuracy of measurement. Check the info on your packaging if you require exact numbers for what you eat.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (480 ml) Water, depends how thick you like it
    – add half then adjust to your preference
    OR homemade Almond Milk, unsweetened, plain
  • juice of 1 Lime (~30 ml)
  • 2 Tbsp Chia or Hemp seeds

Soak the chia seeds in the liquids while you prepare the fruit.
Add the chia to the liquid, stir well, allow to sit for a couple of minutes then stir again. Add to blender with the rest of the ingredients.

  • 1 1/2 cups (240 g) Watermelon*, fresh or frozen cubes, remove seeds
  • 1 cup (120 g) Strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 ripe Banana (50 g), frozen

* Chop and freeze your watermelon in advance, especially if you love ice-cold smoothies.

Note: you will need extra liquid if you use a lot of frozen ingredients as it thickens too quickly for some blenders to cope with. Just add a little more water until your blender runs freely.

Blend until smooth, pour into glasses and enjoy.
