Chia & Berry Smoothie

Berry Chia Smoothie 051

It’s no secret that I love a good smoothie!

This smoothie combines some of my favorite ingredients: pineapple, berries and chia seeds! It is creamy, velvety and a gorgeous shade of purple!

Β I normally don’t include Greek yogurt in my smoothies, but for the past couple of weeks I have been loving it! I am guilty of not eating enough protein, so this is a great way for me to incorporate protein-rich Greek yogurt into my day.

Β Chia seeds are my life! Too dramatic? Okay, I just love them. I add them to my water almost every day. Some people (like my husband) hate the texture of chia seeds. Adding them into a smoothie is great because they get blended in and you don’t even notice they are there.

Do you enjoy chia seeds or have a favorite way of using them? Let me know. πŸ™‚
