Berry Chia Smoothie Wednesday, April 16 2014
Chia, a little black seed whose name means “strength,” has been consumed since ancient Mayan and Aztec cultures as an energy booster. Filled with omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, calcium and antioxidants, chia makes an excellent addition to any fruit or veggie smoothie.
We like pairing ours with berries, banana and Greek yogurt for a filling, fruity combo that even kids will love.
