Mango Matcha Chia Layered Smoothie: Packed with antioxidants and absolutely delicious, this is a perfect smoothie to kick-start your day.
This post was long due and I’m so excited to finally share the Mango Matcha Chia Layered Smoothie with you’ll today.
I’m a BIG smoothie fan …Who Isn’t right? I mean give me a bog bowl of fruits and I might sit with it the whole day but give me a smoothie and I’m all done in 5 minutes –
This is the reason why I love smoothies so much !!!
And with all the morning chaos, they make such a quick and yum breakfast unless we are craving a huge stuffed omelet or french toast (which altogether is a different zone 😉 )
So, I’m always looking at new products to try in my smoothies or new kind of yogurt as a base and that’s how I recently came across Cacique Yogurt Smoothie.
They have 8 gms of proteins, 25% of our daily calcium and probiotics.
All their yogurt smoothies are gluten free with the exception of the three with cereal:
Strawberry Banana w/cereal,
and Pecan w/cereal.
With so many awesome flavors, I decided to first try all the fruit flavors smoothie and they taste amazing.
So I’ve decided to try their mango yogurt smoothie to make my Mango Matcha Chia Layered Smoothie. (Pic of ingredients below)
I’ve made this smoothie a number of times and the most exciting part about it is making the layers.
It’s so much fun that we have gone absolutely bonkers creating layers after layers and literally landed with more smoothie than we can consume in a day.
(Seriously, the top shelf of the fridge was stacked with cups of layered smoothie in see-through glasses wrapped on top – lolz).
That being said, let’s get back to HOW you can make them?
The only thing that takes 2-30 minutes to fluff up is Chia seeds (unless you want to use them as powder).
So just soak the chia seeds in milk or coconut milk (as I did) and as soon as they are fluffed up, you are good to go.
The rest of the process is explained in the recipe section below.
There is no definite rule of layering this smoothie, you can add mango/matcha or chia whatever layer you want at top/ bottom or in-between.
I decorated it with some coconut flakes, chia seeds, crushed almonds and a sprinkle of matcha powder and it looked absolutely GORGEOUS!!!
The colors were brilliant when paired together and the taste was yummylicious!
So, definitely give this smoothie a try and get more information about Cacique -> Here .
