This fruity chia seed smoothie is packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats! Although it has no added sugar, it still tastes like a sweet treat!
Since Alex and I are on this no-added-sugar kick, fruit has been the only source of sweetness we’ve really had. That probably sounds a little sad (no fro yo!?) but it’s actually been way easier than I thought. The other benefit? Fruits naturally taste sweeter than they did before!
So while we haven’t been eating many “sweets”, the things we are eating are sweeter than ever! So when a craving does hit me, I usually reach for some berries. They’re perfect for a smoothie because it’s easy to keep a bag of berries in the freezer and they’re still a low-sugar fruit. So while I’m giving up Sweet Frog… I’m still enjoying fruity treats!
- ¼ cup almond milk (I used unsweetened plain Almond Breeze)
- ¼ cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries (mine were blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and cherries)
- ½ cup ice
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- Add everything to the blender and blend until combined!
- You can use fresh berries if you don't have frozen ones on hand, but your smoothie won't be quite as thick and chilled.
- If you don't have chia seeds, this smoothie will still taste the same, but the chia seeds add a nice kick of healthy fats and fiber!
I’ve been known to eat this for breakfast… or dessert. It seriously tastes like a fruity sorbet! I think we’re going to start eating more fruits this week, but we’re still avoiding added sugars.
