This unique and deliciously sweet and creamy Blueberry Orange smoothie will certainly get you off to a good start for the day. Blueberries and refreshing orange juice are full of vitamin C, anti-oxidants, and dietary fiber. If you are using frozen berries, you won’t need as much ice.

You can turn this yummy smoothie treat into even more of 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 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. Chia seed
  • Optional 3 to 4 ice cubes
