When you start the morning dragging, a green breakfast smoothie recipe is just the thing to get you going. Make yourself a quick Orange Banana fruit smoothie for the perfect jump start to your day! Easy and simple to make and loaded with fruit nutrition. Much better than a high carbohydrate breakfast!

Its also easy to turn this green breakfast 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:

  • 1 ½ cup of orange juice
  • 1 banana
  • 1 ½ cup of mixed berries :fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup of low-fat Greek yogurt (plain, vanilla or any favorite berry you like best!)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp. Chia seed
  • Combine the fruits, yogurt and juice for a perfect pick-me-up that is low in calories but high in protein and fiber!
