    A refreshing breakfast, full of natural sweetness and energy-boosting goodness.

    Serves: 2


    2 teaspoons white chia seeds

    1 medium banana (120 g)

    250 ml soy milk

    1 tablespoon amazake

    Small handful (10 g) baby spinach

    1 heaped teaspoon green tea matcha powder

    1 teaspoon minced or grated ginger


    Use your favourite fruits. I like to use banana, strawberries, blueberries and desiccated coconut.


    1. Soak the chia seeds for a minimum of 10 minutes.

    2. Combine all ingredients in a blender.

    3. Blend until smooth.

    4. Pour into a bowl and serve with your favourite fresh fruits or dried fruits and nuts.
