Healthy High Protein – Choc Mint Smoothie.

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.

Chia Seeds in a smoothie

This choc mint smoothie 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. Learn more here about the benefits of chia seeds

Apart from healthy fats like omega 3’s, 15% more protein is required in your diet during pregnancy and breastfeeding so I have included in the smoothie a scoop of Protein Supplies Australia – “No Nasties” Vanilla Protein Powder. This protein supplement is safe for kids too.  Read more here and use my code BFAB10 when you order to receive 10% off.
