cherry orange smoothie

Fruit juice smoothies are easy to make and this Cherry Orange smoothie recipe proves that point.  If you have kids in the family, fruit juice smoothies are a wonderful way to teach healthy eating habits.  This Cherry Orange smoothie is quick to make, delicious and the best part:  full of vitamin C and omega 3’s.

Its also easy to turn this Cherry Orange 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 taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1 cup of frozen cherries
  • 1 cup of pure orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon of Chia seed
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (or other sweetener of your choice)

Place all the ingredients into a blender and blend until the desired consistency is reached.
