Delicious Orange Berry smoothie; an easy to make breakfast smoothie that provides a morning boost full of Vitamin C, antioxidants, calcium and omega 3s. Perfect choice for getting the fruit nutrition we all need.
Its also easy to turn this Orange 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. You can order Chia directly from Amazon by clicking on the link in the recipe.
In your favorite blender mix:
– 1 1/2 cups fresh berries ( you can use frozen if you need to-both are wonderful sources for the antioxidants we need daily)
– 1 cup of low-fat vanilla yogurt
– 1 cup of chilled orange juice (really good with the pulp!)
– 1 tbsp. Chia seed
Note: If you use frozen berries, start with only 1/2 cup of juice and add as needed. Frozen fruit often reduces the amount of liquids you need to make the smoothie mixture you like best.
