Easy smoothies are the rule in many houses just because they are, well, “easy”. No need for a lot of cutting and mixing if you don’t have to! This raspberry and banana smoothie qualifies as very easy and also very tasty. Give it a try soon.
ts also easy to turn this easy smoothies 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 raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup banana slices (fresh or frozen)
1 cup low fat yogurt: vanilla, plain, raspberry or banana
1 tbsp Chia seed
If you use fresh fruit you might need to add a few ice cubes to blend to the best consistency and chill. Smoothies made with frozen fruit usually don’t need any ice cubes added. There is never a “perfect” answer since the ripeness of the fruit often will determine if more ice needs to be added.
