Many of us take one sort of dietary supplement or another and vitamins are high on that list. Others don’t think that supplements are necessary if you eat a balanced diet. Regardless of which position you take, we all agree that vitamins are necessary for good health. And this is one of the really easy smoothie recipes that are an easy and tasty way to get vitamins into your diet in a tasty and painless way.
Almost all of the really easy smoothie recipes like this one smoothie can be made even more nutritious simply by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed to the mix. Unlike Flax, Chia brings no taste of its own and so won’t change the results at all. Nutritionally, Chia has an extensive footprint including antioxidants and cholesterol fighting, heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids.
In your favorite blender mix:
1 cup frozen unsweetened raspberries
1/4 cup of chilled orange juice (with or without pulp)
1 cup plain or Greek vanilla low-fat yogurt
1 tbsp. Chia seed (optional)
