Raspberry Chia Smoothie

Pin It
Hi friends!
I'm back with healthy treat this time!

Smoothies are one of my favorite healthy snacks.
I love how you can change them up depending upon what fruit you have on hand.
I had frozen raspberries that I needed to use, so tonight I whipped up
this Raspberry Chia smoothie.

Since I was home alone this evening, this smoothie was my dinner : )
It was filling enough to help me get through my 3-mile walk.
I did snack on some baby carrots and hummus afterwards.
Oh and some dark chocolate chips : )

Sometimes I add spinach or kale to my smoothies, but tonight I kept it simple with just fruit
and protein powder.
I use Whole Foods 365 brand of vanilla protein powder, but any brand will do.

Want some other smoothie recipes?
Try this one, this one or this one.

Raspberry Chia Smoothie

3/4 cup frozen raspberries
1 banana
1 scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp. chia seeds

Add raspberries, sliced banana, protein powder and almond milk into a blender.
Blend until smooth and creamy.  Feel free to add more almond milk if the smoothie is too thick and won't blend.  Pour into a glass and sprinkle with chia seeds.
Add a cute straw and enjoy!

Serves one.

  1. This smoothie with a side of hummus and carrots is my idea of a great summer dinner! Refreshing and delicious. I bought a bag of chia seeds but hadn't figured out what to do with them. Now I know. This smoothie is on my "make it soon" list. :)
