Honey gets a bad rap sometimes but it might be one of nature’s most perfect natural foods. Man has used honey as a food, and as a medicine, for thousands of years. While all that is history, today’s fresh fruit honey smoothie recipe is all about adding taste and nutrition to your daily diet.

Smoothies also offer the opportunity to add even more nutritional goodness to any diet 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. You can order Chia directly from Amazon by clicking the link in the recipe.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1 3/4 cups fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, whatever you like!)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1 cup cold apple juice
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. Chia seed
  • Ice to taste
