As I’ve mentioned before, we make a lot of smoothies in this house. I had so many smoothie pictures waiting to be posted, I decided to go ahead and just make today the day of smoothies. Enjoy!
Blueberries, bananas, spinach and chia seeds combined to make these pretty purple smoothies. I love the addition of chia seeds, but if you are unsure about trying them or if you don’t have them on hand, these smoothies are still delicious without them. If you would like to read more about chia seeds, you can see this post and check out the first smoothie I made with them.
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 generous handfuls baby spinach
- 3/4 cup blueberries frozen
- 1 banana frozen or fresh
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- Layer all the ingredients except the chia seeds into the blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth. Add the chia seeds and blend once more. Serve immediately. (The chia seeds will thicken the smoothie if it is allowed to sit for too long before being drinking.)
- This smoothie was extra thick and we all loved it. My boys had a great time eating theirs with spoons.
