Aztec warriors ate chia seeds to give them energy and endurance, they said that just 1 spoonful gave them the energy to keep going for 24 hours. Whilst we're not saying this smoothie will keep you going for 24 hours, it will certainly keep you going for a good while!  Chia seeds are mineral rich and a great source of beneficial fatty acids, containing more omega 3 than salmon. For us to absorb fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, E & K we must have a supply of these healthy fats, not only that, essential fats keep us feeling fuller for longer and can prevent fatigue by keeping the blood sugar stable.  Add this to the fact that chia is the ancient Mayan word for strength and we have a winner on our hands.

This smoothie is also highly antioxidant, the berries, black grapes and mango all have high ORAC values (Oxygen Radical Absorbtion Capacity), this is a method of measuring the antioxidant capacity of foods. Antioxidants help our bodies to gently detox harmful free radicals and this in turn allows our bodies to work at their optimum capacity.

If you need the strength of a Mayan and the energy and endurance of an Aztec warrior, then this is the smoothie for you!
