Bananas are a smoothie staple and apples are high on everyone’s list of favorites. This Orange Juice Banana Smoothie recipe brings both together in a very simple yet very tasty treat.
Its also easy to turn this 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 taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
1 large apple, peeled, cored and sliced (I like Fiji Apples)
1 large banana, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup milk (your choice of type)
1 Tbsp. Chia seed
