So...it's a balmy 55 degrees here in the midwest! Is it time for smoothies yet? John and I have been coming up with ways to add Chia seed to our diet. And in the midst of trying to lose weight for this summer's beach vacation, I came up with a non creamy version of smoothy because if anyone knows my husband, he will not drink anything dairy. I did manage to sneak in a little flavored yogurt, which he isn't minding.
Combine in blender:
8 oz. flavored yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice (milk if you prefer more dairy)
3 Tbsp. honey or agave syrup
1 Tbsp. Chia seed
Blend well, honey tends to clump in the frozen ingredients.
1 cup frozen strawberries (if whole, cut up)
1 cup ice cubes
1 banana or 1 cup frozen blueberries
Blend until smooth! If too liquidy, just add more ice or strawberries. Serves two.
