Blueberries, full of nutrients and flavor, yet very low in calories are rich with the antioxidants all of us require for healthy living. Creating the following Blueberry Banana Greek Yogurt Smoothie mix of fresh, or even frozen blueberries is one very tasty way to add many essential vitamins in a healthy quick meal.
Its also easy to turn this smoothie treat into even more of a health boosting 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 taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
1 cup Blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 large frozen banana (peel and sliced before freezing!)
1 cup of low-fat Greek yogurt, vanilla is a nice choice to mix these flavors
1 tbsp Chia seed
