Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup pitted cherries fresh or frozen
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 inches ginger root thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed meal
  • ice to thicken
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Instructions

  • 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. 

Notes

I prefer to sprinkle the chia seeds whole on top of the smoothie and stir it in as I drink it but you're welcome to blend it in with the other ingredients.
