STRAWBERRY KIWI SMOOTHIE-PALEO

Smoothies are the perfect breakfast or snack for meals on the run. The chia seeds in this deliciously fruity version add a unique texture. Drink this Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie smoothie right away for a satisfying crunch, or wait for the seeds to “gel” and enjoy a texture similar to tapioca pearls. This shake is lower in protein than most Paleo breakfasts, so be sure to pair it with a hard-boiled egg, some cooked chicken or sausage, or a handful of almonds for a complete meal.

Recipe makes 2 servings.
Approximate Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

1 large kiwi(s), peeled and roughly chopped or sliced
1 cup(s) strawberries, frozen
1 can(s) coconut milk, full fat (403 mL)
2 tablespoon(s) chia seeds
1 teaspoon(s) honey, raw, (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine kiwi, strawberries, coconut milk and honey (if desired) in a blender. Pulse for 60 seconds, or until fully blended.
  2. Stir in chia seeds. Serve immediately. For a thicker smoothie, refrigerate for 4 to 24 hours to let chia seeds “gel.”
