Some taste combinations are justly considered to be classics and I submit that the combination of fresh banana and fresh orange is one of them. The smooth satisfaction of banana paired with the juicy sweetness of orange just makes my day and I’ll be it will yours as well. The following banana orange smoothie recipe is easy to make and even easier to enjoy. A great way to start the day, or as a well deserved treat.
Its also easy to turn this tasty smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
