Strawberry Cheesecake Protein Smoothie

Our Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie had a couple secret super food ingredients in it, and this smoothie is no different. A secret of nutrition experts is to use sugar free pudding or jello mix to flavor desserts.  This sugar free cheesecake pudding mix is the perfect thing to combine with strawberries.  It transforms the mixture in to a creamy heavenly rich cheesecake texture.

Berries are the perfect way to pack in nutrients!

The second secret ingredient is Chia seeds.  Chia seeds are a super food and super hot in the nutrition world.  The health benefits are numerous!  The name ” Chia” is actually a Mayan word for “strength”.  They are also packed with antioxidants that help fight off diseases. Another key fact is that chia seeds are full of Fiber. Fiber is what helps you stay full, and fends off the munchies. Chia seeds are also really high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids. There are many more benefits, but with just these few, it’s easy to see why they are a clear choice to add to any smoothie!

The third secret ingredient is Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is packed with protein! The protein helps grow your muscle, so your body can burn more calories. It is also packed with Probiotics. Probiotics are essential to helping your body’s immune system and also aid in digestion.

These secret ingredients will help you get fit!

    I am off to the supermarket to get these ingredients and then a quick blast in my nutriblender I got for Xmas. Not sure if I can get Chia seeds so easily near me but I can go to Borough Food market in South London which has absolutely everything!
