Orange and Vanilla go together so well, its no surprise this Orange Vanilla Smoothie is so popular! This recipe is such a good summer treat it is hard to think of something that could be any better.
Its also easy to turn this Orange Vanilla 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.
