There are a lot of fruit smoothie recipes with apples and bananas. In fact, apples and bananas are two of the more basic smoothie ingredients. And, going back to the basics is often a really nice break. This particular recipe is really easy to make and is definitely a healthy snack idea for a morning snack or after working out or walking.
Just about all smoothie recipes, and many other recipes too, can be made even more healthy and nutritious than they already are 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:
-2 bananas cut in chunks or 1.5 cups of frozen banana chunks
-1/2 cup of apple juice
-1 cup of Greek vanilla yogurt
-1 tbsp. Chia seed
