Beet, Berry & Cacao Smoothie

I enjoy smoothie's all year round but definitely have them weekly when the weather is warmer. My main aim with smoothies is to try and keep fruit to a minimum. I think too many smoothies, especially ones you can buy, have too much fruit and not enough balance of vegetables, protein and healthy fats. Hence this nutritious powerhouse :)

4 strawberries

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 tablespoon cacao powder

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
