With Lachlan's eczema I am always looking for options to get more essential fatty oils into him as they really do help with his skin.
This tropical smoothie - a very satisfying breakfast or after school/sports pick me up, full of good essential fatty acids from the seeds and fibre from the fruit!
1 tblsp chia seeds
1 tblsp sunflower seeds
1 tblsp flaxseed
1 tblsp pepitas 1 large banana (frozen in small slices)
½ sweet pineapple fresh or half a large canned tin
2 peeled oranges halved
300-400g water (or to taste)
1. Place seeds into Thermomix bowl and grind for 40 seconds on speed 9
2. Add fruit speed 9 for 30 seconds
3. Add water speed 9 for 20-30 seconds and serve
If you aren’t nut free a tablespoon of almonds can be added in step 1.
