This black cherry smoothie recipe is made with banana, flax seed and chia seeds to create an energy-packed breakfast on-the-go!
Recently I paired two of my favorite fruits: sweet black cherries and bananas. Of course, cherry season only lasts a few weeks here in Michigan so I always keep my freezer stocked with frozen, pitted cherries.
This thick and creamy smoothie is made with plain Greek yogurt, ripe banana, flax seed meal and fresh ginger.
Before serving, I sprinkle each glass with chia seeds to add a crunchy texture to each sip. You’re welcome to blend them in with the rest of the ingredients as well.
Your straw is waiting.
Banana Cherry Smoothie with Chia Seeds
- Place banana, cherries, yogurt, ginger and flax seed meal in a high speed blender and puree until smooth. Add ice to reach desired thickness then pour smoothie into two glasses. Stir in one tablespoon chia seeds to each glass before serving.
