For this smoothie, I am using dried black grapes, preferably with seeds. (raisins are fine, too though). With a good blender, they will be crushed into tiny pieces so that their antioxidant OPC is easy to absorb. Did you know that basil seeds are pretty similar to chia seeds? Like chia, they contain loads of omega 3 fatty acids and the kind of fibre that can soak up a lot of water. Basil seeds, however, have an aromatic, even aetheric character. And in contrast to chia, they are local to places with a temperate climate. So here in Germany, it would be more ecological to use local basil seeds instead of chia. This smoothie is celestially light in feel and flavour. I like to drink about 200 ml of this smoothie before mental activity.
Serves 1. Preparation time: 1 min
- 1 tbsp basil seeds (or chia)
- 2 tbsp oats
- 2 tbsp dried grapes (or raisins)
- 1 small glass of water (180 ml / 6,5 oz)
Blend all the ingredients and enjoy!
