Now we are in the summer months (we think :-) !), a cooling breakfast smoothie or post-workout shake that is light and easy to drink is often more appealing than the thicker varieties.
The new unique RealFoodSource organic chia oil and coconut oil blend makes for a great addition to this shake with it's excellent omega 3/6 balance that adds a boost to regular coconut oil. It also offers a smoother texture than banana alone and thickens up a little once chilled. Instead of blending in spinach or kale leaves for a regular style green smoothie, this shake uses wheatgrass powder for a super speedy blend.
For the liquid component you could use water, nondairy milk or coconut water to your preference.
Recipe: Banana and Wheatgrass Blended Shake
- 1 banana
- 2 tsp chia seed oil blended with coconut oil
- 1-2 tsp wheatgrass powder (to taste)
- 1 1/2 cup liquid of choice
Blend until very smooth. Chill before serving.
Note: It may separate a little if stood to chill for a long time. If it does just give it a quick shake or stir.
