Mango Chia Smoothie
Yes, I admit it…I am one of the many who’ve jumped on the bandwagon and made a new years resolution to be healthier. Making an effort to eat healthier doesn’t necessarily mean you have to sacrifice flavor. Mangoes were one of those once-in-a-while treats I had as a kid, mainly due to seasonality. Now that every grocery store carries mango in the frozen section, you can enjoy the tropical and sweet fruit all year round! I’ve been drinking chia seeds all my life, only recently did I learn about their many health benefits. Not only do chia seeds suppress hunger, they’re a great source of calcium, iron fiber, omega fatty acids and antioxidants. This wonder ingredient mixed the delicious and nutritious mango makes for the perfect drink for someone on a health kick!

1 1/2 cup frozen mango
1/4 cup low fat milk
1 tsp chia seeds
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 1/2 tsp sugar

In a blender, add in all the ingredients and blend on high speed for about 1 minute.

  1. I love chia seeds; I haven’t made it myself yet, but sometimes I get that chia seed pudding made with coconut milk for an after-lunch treat and it is so delicious. This looks just as tasty, and creamy, too!

    • It is extremely creamy! Mmm, chia with coconut milk pudding? I’ve never had it, but it sounds delicious!
