Even if we protest, we all love a good dessert. In fact quick and easy desserts have a long and honorable history. According to Wikipedia, desserts have been around forever beginning with locally available treats such as dried fruits, honeycombs, or nuts. Ice cream became popular in the 1800s as tastes changed. Today, desserts continue to change as our tastes do.
This Raspberry Sherbet and mixed berry smoothie certainly qualifies as being one of the quick and easy desserts; with only three required ingredients it couldn’t be much easier.
But, if you want more out of your dessert, its also easy to turn this dessert 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:
- 2 cups frozen mixed berries
- 2 cups of milk (soy, low fat or 2%)
- 2 scoops raspberry frozen sherbert
- 1 tbsp. Chia seed
