Looking to improve your intake of fibre and protein? Here’s a healthy way to kick off your day!



2 ripe peaches

1 tablespoon of chiaseeds or flaxseeds

2 tablespoons of LSA (or a small handful or raw almonds)

½ frozen banana (already peeled and diced)

¼ cup of fresh orange juice

½ cup organic almond milk.

1 tablespoon agave or rice bran syrup

½ cup rolled oats (or use quinoa flakes if wanting gluten free option)



Add all ingredients together in a blender or a nutribullet and leave standing for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the chia seeds or flax seeds to expand and soak.
