:: Dragonfruit Chia Layers ::

03 Jul :: Dragonfruit Chia Layers ::

Today, we’re layering up sexy hot pink with black chia seeds.

No time to do fancy layering? 

No problem – just blend them all up and you’ll still get a pretty pink hue!

Can you tell that chia seed is one of my favourite superfood (apart from flax and hemp seeds)?

That’s because it is loaded with omega-3s, protein and fibre plus it’s so versatile.

It’s one of those hyped up health food and now I see why.

You can sprinkle it on your salad, yoghurt, mix it in your oatmeal like this, make chia pudding like this, or smoothie like this. 

Ready? Let’s go!
