I absolutely love smoothies, (who doesn't?!) especially in the morning because they're quick and you pack in the fiber and protein!
The other day I thought I'd try something new without the protein powder that I usually use, and this is what I came up with! - It might actually be a new favorite of mine.
It leaves you full and the chia seeds are a great source of protein and fiber!
What You Need:
Organic Chia Seeds - 1 or 2 TBSP (I use the ones fromBetter Body Foods)
Frozen Dark Sweet Pitted Cherries - 1 and a half cups (I get mine at SAMS club - Townsend Farms)
Banana - I only used half because I wanted more of a cherry flavor, but you can use a whole.
Milk - 1 Cup (Milk I use: 2% Milk w/ Omega-3 fromSimple Truth Organic)
Put everything in the blender and blend until smooth. If you don't have frozen cherries, you can just add ice.
The serving size was enough to last me three mornings, though it may only last for two.
