Mango Chia Seed Smoothie
Jul 272015
 

I love mangoes. I love the sweet (and slightly tart) fruit in smoothies, desserts, on oatmeal, in yogurt, and just straight up! Today’s smoothie is a really quick and easy recipe, only requiring 4 ingredients and about 4 minutes of total prep time! My kind of recipe!

Chia seeds are a super healthy addition to oups, salads, smoothies… and when you add them to a smoothie with mango, you won’t even know they are there! However, they add a beautiful speckled look to the drink, in addition, of course, to the myriad of health benefits that can be obtained from the seeds! Chia seeds are rich in nutrients & antioxidants and they are very high in fiber!

Let’s get to the recipe now, shall we?
