 Tips :

ü When chia seeds are mixed with water they turn into a gel that is an excellent smoothie thickener.

ü In a cup or glass, add 1 tablespoon of whole chia seeds to about 1/2 cup of the  water .Stir thoroughly with a spoon and let the mixture sit for 5 – 10 minutes.

ü Soaking helps to break the seed open, making it easier to digest and access the nutrients inside the seed.

ü You can also blend your shake/ smoothie ingredients without the chia seeds and add them into the blender for the final few seconds. 

                     SATTU SHAKE : 🍹

 Sattu (prefer barley one instead of chana only) made from barley and gram. It is extremely beneficial (high levels of proteins & carbohydrates ) and
usually dissolved in water.
                            Beta –glucane present in sattu, which regulates sugar levels in the blood by reducing the absorption of  glucose in the body.
