Cacao Chia Smoothie...and a rolling bubba


We've had such major excitement at our household this week! Our 16-week old buddha rolled from her back to her front...twice! Now her favourite trick is to try and do this again, and again. Although sometimes far less successful than her first two attempts. Nevertheless, she was very chuffed with herself!

We've also discovered Isabella absolutely adores being outside under the trees in the garden and so every fine day, we pop outside on the mat for some leaf watching. Armed with fists in her mouth and garden sing songs, we can sit out there quite happily for an hour or so with the dog in tow. I made this Cacao Chia Smoothie as I watched Isabella out the kitchen window and then took it outside to enjoy alongside her, feet planted in the grass with the warm breeze of Summer passing us by,

The smoothie is totally amazing if you feel like a chocolate fix or even if you're after something completely rich and indulgent but packed with nutrients. It also makes a great post-exercise recovery snack as it's rich in protein. I hope you enjoy it xx
