Very few have a lot of time in the mornings and are always on the lookout for quick breakfast ideas that are both tasty and nutritious. Fruit smoothies are a great answer to the problem. This recipe is a perfect example; peach and pineapple are two fruits that complement each other very well in a quick and easy smoothie recipe.

Its also easy to turn this tasty 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 fresh or frozen peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup cold milk (soy, low fat or 2%)
  • 1/4 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. Chia seed
  • ice to taste (if using fresh peaches)

Add as many ice cubes as you need to reach the consistency you like best.
