This is a mixed fruit smoothie you can make year around with either fresh or frozen mixed fruits. I think it is one of the better breakfast idea since it is so light and satisfying.

Its also easy to turn this mixed fruit 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 banana cut in chunks (or the equivalent of frozen bananas)
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries or mixed berries
  • ½-3/4 cup milk (2%, soy or low-fat)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 tbsp Chia seed

Mix fruits with ½ cup milk and blend.  You might need to add another ¼ cup of milk, or if you prefer you can 4-5 ice cubes if the smoothie is too thick.  The texture of your smoothie depends on the fruit, so don’t worry about adding more liquids if you need to!
