Coffee Chia Smoothie


This smoothie gives you a great boost for the day.

You probably weren’t expecting to see coffee on the menu, but a small amount of coffee is quite good for us.

The rule of thumb is for healthy coffee drinking is:

  • it must be freshly ground
  • it must be drunk before 12pm
  • it must be good quality
  • and only 1 shot per day

Enjoying your coffee with vitamin E rich almond milk and omega 3 charged chia seeds makes this smoothie rather super.

You can make it in advance and sip it on your journey to work.

The chia seeds swell up giving this drink a lovely texture and the coffee and almond milk mix give it a nice creamy finish. I just know you’re going to love it.

Serves 1 Ready in 11 minutes Good For ,


  1. Place everything except the seeds in the blender and blend. Pour into a glass then stir in the chia seeds vigorously.
  2. Let this mix sit for 10 minutes stirring every few minutes.
  3. Add some ice and sip it back!
