I had come up with the idea of a gingerbread smoothie but it didn't quite turn out as planned so I adapted it and made it a festive smoothie. I am not qualified in nutrition but having met dietitian Renee McGregor I think that this smoothie is great for recovery with protein from milk, yogurt and chia seeds as well as fresh ginger which is a natural anti inflammatory to help those muscles which have been working hard!
All you need to do is stick it in a blender and blitz until smooth, easy. I found the raisins weren't completely blended but it was quite nice with them like that.
Unfortunately I don't have a photo as it was just too tasty!
This is a really simple and convenient way to add more chia seeds to your diet!
The seeds will take 10-20 minutes to hydrate
You are making a real food drink with real food, so it might take a tiny bit of attention and a few extra seconds, but like anything once you've worked out your system, it will become second nature.
