Strawberries are in full swing at the farmers' markets, which means, if you're like me, you're trying to incorporate them into every dish possible. This delicious smoothie is chockfull of antioxidants from strawberries and chia seeds. Have you heard of this ancient super-seed? Not only does it offer a slew of nutrients, it also has fiber and protein. Its mild flavor makes it an easy addition to smoothies, salads, oatmeal, and more.
Strawberry + Banana Smoothie with Chia Seeds
1 1/2 bananas, frozen
1 cup strawberries, frozen
1 cup water
1/2 cup almond milk (I recommend the Blue Diamond brand)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
4 ice cubes
Combine bananas, strawberries, water, almond milk, chia seeds and ice into a good powerful blender until smooth and creamy. Pour and enjoy!
