Should you be running out of healthy breakfast ideas, today’s cinnamon and nectarineĀ fruit smoothie uses nectarines which, as you probably know, is a form of peach. Nonetheless, nectarines have a different taste and do really well as change from the usual breakfast ideas.

This smoothie treat also makes it easy to start the day with a lot of additional nutrition simply by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed to the recipe. 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:

  • 2/3 cup low or no fat milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 nectarines, with peel but deseeded and chunked
  • 1 Tbsp. Chia seed
  • Ice to taste
