Vanilla-Chiaseed Mylkshake

As a girl one of my favourite things was a cold vanilla milkshake. Usually made with lots of sugar, dairy milk, ice-cream. Definitely not a healthy way to get re-energized, in my opinion. Throughout summer I like to make each member of my family a juice daily, & a smoothie or ‘mylkshake’ (the truefood alkalising energizing mylkshake you have when your NOT having a milkshake!). Here’s today’s simple & delicious recipe!

Vanilla-Chiaseed Mylkshake
The truefood alkalising energizing mylkshake you have when your NOT having a milkshake!

Recipe type: smoothie
Serves: 2
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 2 young green coconuts, water & pulp
  • 1-2 tablespoons soaked chiaseeds (at least 15 min but best overnight) + more to stir through later if desired
  • 1-2 tablespoons light agave, more if you want it really sweet
  • The scraped seeds from an organic vanilla pod OR natural vanilla extract
  • 10 icecubes (optional but really good!)
Instructions
  1. BLEND coconut water, pulp, chia, agave & vanilla together until very smooth & creamy, adding the ice last & blend again.
  2. If you love chia seeds as much as I do, stir through another spoonful of whole soaked chia seeds for texture. Divide into 2 tall glasses & enjoy!
Notes
A Bonus: Coconut water is PACKED with super-hydrating goodness (means - a facial, for your cells) PLUS it's naturally high in lauric acid which actually BURNS fat for me as I sit here sipping & typing ;)

    PS. TO SOAK Chia seeds: I use a scant Tablespoon to 1 cup of water & shake vigorously for a few seconds before soaking 6hrs or overnight, then store in the fridge. I like to use them within a few days. You may use less or more chia seeds to water ratio, depending on how ‘separated’ you’d like the seeds to be, & they are also delicious added to freshly made juices, yogurt, even over fresh fruit with a splash of almond milk for breaky ;) xxx Abigail
