Banana, Berry & Chia Shake Recipe by Chia Bia & Nessa Robins
Chia Bia seeds are packed with brain-boosting omegas. They work quite well with milkshake fans or as homemade fruit smoothies for a tasty treat. A nutrient-rich fruit shake is a marvellous way to top up on your five-a-day.

– 100g strawberries, hulled and frozen
– 30g blueberries, frozen
