Low in calories and high in fruit nutrition. This Banana Pear smoothie is both tasty and works really well in any smoothie diet!

Include a full day’s worth of nutrition in this smoothie treat 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 seed directly from Amazon by clicking on the link in the recipe.

In your favorite blender mix:

– 1 banana cut in chunks or 3/4 cup frozen banana
– 1 pear cored/seeded and cut in chunks or 3/4 cup of frozen or canned pears
– 2 cups fresh spinach (or other leafy green)
– 1 carton low-fat plain yogurt
– 1 Tbsp. Chia seed

You might need to add a handful of ice cubes to blend your smoothie, but it will depend on the ripeness of the fruit or if you are using frozen fruit. After mixing the basic ingredients, add one or two ice cubes as needed.

Raspberry smoothie recipes are always popular and this mix with two kinds of apples and Greek yogurt is no exception.

We continually hear about the health benefits of eating apples. We know apples,because they contain pectin which makes you feel full, fill your stomach and help you sustain the “full” feeling. And, apples because they are low in calories not only curb your hunger, but don’t pile on the calories. Raspberries are rich with antioxidants, offering almost 50% more higher antioxidant activity than strawberries, three times that of kiwis, and ten times the antioxidant activity of tomatoes. Combined with apples, the flavor is just delicious!

To serve 2-3, in your smoothie blender mix:
-1 Red Delicious apple cored, seeded and cut in chunks
-1 Granny Smith apple cored, seeded and cut in chunks
-1 cup of cold Juicy Juice Apple Raspberry juice
-1 cup of low-fat Raspberry Greek yogurt
-1 teaspoon of Chia seed
for a daily dose of hearrt healthy Omega 3s
