INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 20 cl almond milk
  • 5 almonds

PREP TIME (5 MIN.):

Peel the banana then blend all the ingredients together in a blender. Enjoy chilled.

FizzUp tip: This smoothie goes perfectly with doing your workout at the office. Bananas are fuel you can count on. Chia seeds are a good source of iron, calcium, vitamin C and omega-3, which reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.

2 | COCONUT SMOOTHIES

Coconut milk is an ideal alternative to animal milk because it significantly contributes to building and solidifying bones, although it only contains 38 g of calcium.
