Orange Raspberry Banana Chia Smoothie

Orange Raspberry Banana Chia Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

I discovered a forgotten bag of frozen raspberries in the back of my freezer and I couldn't resist turning them into an impromptu smoothie for my boys' snack. This was not as sweet a smoothie as I anticipated and I liked the slight tartness from the berries. I will be picking up more frozen raspberries soon, so that I can include them in future smoothies.

  1. Sure is a beautiful color and I'd like one for breakfast please. I'd never heard of chia seeds, but just posted about a restaurant named Chia's - I feel some research coming on.

  4. I'm so interested in chia seeds, can you use them in breads and things like that, are they like sesame seeds or poppy seeds? All I know is that I used to have a chia pet when I was little, do they still have those? (Lots of questions in this comment;)
