One reason I love smoothies and am so passionate about promoting them is that you can pack in loads of healthy nutrients. They are also very easy to make especially convenient for busy mums and ideal for on the go.
This shake can also be made for babies, kids and growing teens !
When making for babies (about 10 months +), just make sure that they have been introduced to all the ingredients listed in the shake or make a simpler version with chickpeas, banana, tahini and ½ a date.
Tip: I use frozen chickpeas and boil about 3 cups at a time and store them in the fridge for easy access. They are very convenient, because they only need about 15 to 20 minutes of boiling.
Variation: Add a tablespoon of cacao to turn it into a chocolate shake.
I've seen some recipes use strawberries but do not agree with the digestive compatibility... Chickpeas and strawberries may not be the best combination, but if you don't suffer from digestive problems you could give it a go and see. Strawberries are best combined with yogurt.
