Summer smoothie with chia seeds and watermelon
In the summer days we sweat more and so we have the need for increased fluid intake. Because, staying in indoor, air-conditioned spaces results in loss of body moisture through the skin. The lost liquid has to be compensated for by additional amounts of water or by taking food rich with water.
When you mention chia, everyone thinks about fiber, weight loss and a good nutrition intake, and that’s exactly what is important during the summer days. On the mention of watermelon, everyone is thinking of the heat, the beach and also the summer holidays.
Can you imagine on joining the two special summer foods now! In the form of a smoothie, for which only a good will and a blender is needed.
Apart from having a high water content, the watermelon is delicious, juicy and light, so it is an ideal dessert or a drink on summer heat. It is also low calorie and contains many vitamins, especially vitamins A and C.
Chia seeds absorb fluid and can increase the volume up to 10 times. They become gelatinous texture making them ideal for the kitchen.
Chia seeds texture and the taste of each smoothie or frappe will not change, but it will only give it a better and more lush texture. Additionally, the beverage will be enriched by 3.4 grams of fiber, 80% of the required daily intake of vitamin K and 63.1 mg of calcium (1 tablespoon).
Blender is a device that every “raw” kitchen should have, so that you can prepare delicious food daily … and even these recipes we bring!
