Ingredients

Bananas – 2

Strawberries – 5

Raspberries – 10

Chia seeds – 4 teaspoons

Vanilla extract – 2 to 3 drops

Greek Yogurt – 1 cup

Directions

Add everything into a juice blender and mix on high speed for 4-5 minutes. That’s it! Your ‘ready to go’ healthy breakfast smoothie is done!

It tastes thick and delicious! I was glad that I did not add any extra sugar. This was my first time incorporating chia seeds in my smoothies – I loved the crunchy texture it brought to my palate.

Quick Facts

  • Bananas are an excellent source of potassium. A diet high in potassium can help lower blood pressure and have positive effects on cardiovascular health.
  • Chia seeds are one of the best vegetarian sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

 

To good health and happiness!

Much love,
