6755467955_6ca437077bChia seeds are all the rage, so why not add them into your special smoothie for a boost of protein, omega 3’s, calcium and potassium?!

Here’s how:

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Directions:

1. Set out your blender.

2. Peel your banana, and split into 3-4 pieces, then add into your blender.

3. Add in your frozen blueberries.

4. Blend until banana and blueberries reach a smooth consistency. Pour into a glass or bowl.

5. Add in chia seeds, mix them into the smoothie. Let them sit for 5-10 minutes, or until the chia seeds have puffed up and become gel like.

Enjoy!
