This Cherry Chia Smoothie is smooth, creamy and full of yummy goodness. Cherries are one of my favorite fruits and the chia seeds adds flavor and nuttiness. I like to base my fruit smoothies with a Greek yogurt , it is sort of tangy and goes with the sweetness of fruit. I started experimenting with smoothies a few years ago when my teenagers discovered the local smoothie shop. If they had an unlimited budget they would be there everyday but $7-9 a pop they would rather me make them at home and save their money for more important things.
What is great about smoothies are they are so versatile. They can be a delicious way to start your day as breakfast or an afternoon pick me up for a snack. Chia seeds is something I recently started adding to smoothies and even oatmeal for the health benefits. If you have never tried them a smoothie is a great way to give them a whirl. They are a good source of fiber, iron , calcium and protein. This recipe you can switch up the flavors of yogurt and fruit to suit your taste. I love experimenting with flavor combos.
Making a Cherry Chia Smoothie is so EASY!!
When my boys discovered smoothies I invested in a bullet but a plain blender will do. This recipe is perfect for one serving if you use a bullet it can be blended and served from the cup you blended it it in. This is super simple, dump all the ingredients in the blender. Blend until nice and smooth , and enjoy .
