The Chia Seed Yogurt Smoothie is a classic strawberry banana smoothie with added chia seeds as a nutritional boost.
Chia seeds are packed with nutrients and very little calories. They provide a high mount of fiber that is helpful for stabilizing blood sugar levels and keeping your digestive tract healthy. Chia seeds are also loaded with antioxidants that can prevent certain types of cancers and help detoxify your body.
Yogurt is also added to this smoothie as a healthier option when compared to ice cream that is lower in fat and higher in protein. Drink the Chia Seed Yogurt Smoothie for a classic strawberry banana smoothie with an added health boost.
Note: You can presoak your chia seeds, or use as it whole. I also like to use chia powder (affiliate link), so that the seeds are already ground.
Aside from using chia seeds in smoothies, you an also make a flavored chia seeds water, which will have less calories and is popular for weight loss.
