Here is a delicious V8 smoothie made even better with bananas and blueberries for a great breakfast. Low in calories so it also works really well in a smoothie diet. Low in calories but high in taste, this smoothie will certainly be one of your favorites.
Its also easy to turn this V8 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:
1 1/2 cups blueberries (about 80 calories per cup-frozen or fresh)
- 1 medium banana (1medium sized banana is about 105 calories)
- 1 cup chilled Diet V8 Splash® Diet Berry Blend (8 fl. oz.is only 10 Calories)
- 1 Tbsp. Chia seed
Start by adding only 1/2 cup of V8. Then add as much as you need to give you the consistency you like. Sometimes if you use frozen berries you use less liquid, but it will depend on the texture and ripeness of the fruit.
