Today we’re going back to one of the most popular fruits of all – Strawberry. Did you know that the strawberry is part of the Rose family? Maybe the strawberry got the taste and the rose got the beauty? Anyway, this is a very tasty and easy to make strawberry peach smoothie.
Its also easy to turn this strawberry peach 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.
In your favorite blender mix:
2 1/2 cups strawberry nectar
1 peach (pitted of course)
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt (OK to use low-fat strawberry yogurt if you prefer)
2 1/2 cups strawberries
1 Tbsp. Chia seed
Ice to taste
