It was such a warm autumn day in Brisbane today so I made this delicious high protein smoothie for Miss 3 and I. Her favourite thing at the moment is Choc Mint ! So we just had to have a Choc Mint Smoothie.
It is really thick and filling because of the chia seeds in it (which are packed with Omega 3’s) so are perfect for toddlers or growing bubbies in tummies, or most of all hungry pregnant or breastfeeding mummas.
You need 15% more protein in your diet during pregnancy and breastfeeding so I have included in the smoothie a scoop of Protein Supplies Australia “No Nasties” WPI Vanilla Protein Powder. This protein supplement is safe for kids too. Read more here and use my code PSA4Preggibellies when you order to receive 10% off here.
