Some smoothie recipes get pretty complicated by adding a lot of different ingredients. Sometimes, though, just a simple recipe is all you want or need. This Pineapple Strawberry smoothie fits that description perfectly with just three ingredients. Easy to make and very tasty too.

Its also easy to turn this berry 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 noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

-1 banana (peeled and chunked)
-1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
-3/4 cup cold pineapple juice
-1 tbsp. Chia seed
-Ice to taste (if you used frozen strawberries, you may need less ice)

That’s it. Blend and enjoy.
