Here is a really satisfying and healthy breakfast smoothie recipe; a Strawberry Orange smoothie that’s delicious as well. You can use this strawberry orange smoothie as a healthy way to start off any morning or for a guilt free afternoon snack.
Its also easy to turn this yummy 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:
- 2½ cups fresh strawberries
- 1 cup vanilla fat free yogurt
- ½ cup orange juice w/ calcium
- ½ cup skim milk (or soy)
- 1 tbsp Chia seed
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
