If being easy to make is just as important to you as healthy, then this strawberry yogurt smoothie is sure to be in your recipe box!
Its also easy to turn this strawberry yogurt smoothie treat into a complete 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 of frozen banana chips
1 cup of frozen strawberries
1 cup of low fat yogurt (strawberry, banana, vanilla or plain)
1 tsp. Chia seed
This is a great recipe to teach your children too. Let them make their own afternoon snacks, which will help them develp cooking habits that are nutritious and taste good too!
The frozen fruits should provide enough juice for the smoothie to mix to the “right” consistency without having to add any ice cubes.
