I have this thing where I go on various food “kicks” and all I can do is gorge myself on said food for varying amounts of time (days, weeks, sometimes months). Recently, I’ve once again formed a close loving bond with SMOOTHIES.
That’s right, smoothies. What better way to get delicious and nutritious fruits inside your body (aside from eating them raw, of course) than to blend those babies up with some juice and honey?
Also, I bought a bag of Chia seeds and I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THEM. They’re a fantastic ancient grain that becomes gelatinous when introduced to liquid and they’re really good for your insides, according to some documentary I watched on Netflix. Click here to read more from Dr. Oz.
And of course, I don’t like to leave you all without a recipe! Remember you can change the ingredients to fit your needs/taste. It’s a smoothie, as long as you don’t put apples or oranges in there, you’re fine. (Trust me, I’ve tried. Don’t do it.)
Frozen Chia Smoothie (~2-5 points on Weight Watchers)
– 4-6 strawberries
– 1/2 cup frozen mango
– 1/4 cup frozen cherries
– 3/4 cup juice (I used limeade for this one)
– 1 tbsp honey or agave nectar
– Top with tsp of chia seeds and mix in post blending
