  • 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


  • 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. 


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.
