This is an easy banana smoothie with almonds and chia seeds, to kick start a day with full of energy. Healthy and filling to keep you full in the morning. Chia seeds has a lot of health benefits as it is rich in dietary fiber, protein, minerals, omega -3 fats. You can substitute chia seeds with flax seeds as well.



Banana smoothie recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Continental  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time 5 mins    |  Cook time: 0 mins     Serves: 1

Ingredients

Banana - 1

Milk - 1 cup

Almonds - 6

Chia seeds - 1 tbsp

Honey - 1 tbsp

Vanilla - 1/4 tsp




Method

  1. I used frozen banana slices. You can freeze the banana for an hour to make it cold, so that the smoothie is cold. Also use chilled milk. Place everything in a blender and blend smoothly.

Notes

    • You can first grind almonds with banana and little milk and then add rest of the milk. When I ground everything together, I got almond bits in between. I liked it very much, but if you want it smooth, you can first grind it smoothly to a paste.
    • You can also add a dash of cinnamon powder to this smoothie. 

Serve immediately. Delicious as well as healthy and easy breakfast smoothie! I topped with a pinch of my favourite chocolate drink :)
