Two of our most popular fruits come together in a strawberry orange smoothie recipe that is very easy to make and even easier to enjoy.
Its also easy to turn this strawberry orange 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 taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
Fire up your trusty blender and mix:
- 1/2 cup of fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup of fresh orange juice
- 1/2 teaspoon of honey (or sweetener of your choice)
- 1/2 cup of ice cubes (about 4-6 cubes)
- 1 tbsp. Chia seed
