Berry Ginger Chia Smoothies.

Those who have been following me for a while know that my family is a little bit smoothie crazy. I start most of my mornings with a fresh, flavorful smoothie. I keep my breakfast from getting boring by experimenting with different smoothie ingredients, and two of my favorites are ginger and chia seeds. Packed with nutrition and flavor, they inspired this Berry Ginger Chia Smoothie.


  • Berry: To keep things simple, I keep a bag of frozen mixed berries in my freezer, but fresh or frozen, use a mix of your favorite. Mine contains raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and blackberries.
  • Banana: Acts as a natural sweetener for the smoothie and adds nutrients like potassium and vitamin C.
  • Milk: Use whatever milk you have, I usually use skim milk or almond milk.
  • Greek yogurt: I prefer Greek yogurt because it’s thicker, higher in protein, and lower in sugar than regular yogurt.
  • Chia seeds: Adds a bit of crunch and packs protein, omega-3s and antioxidants.
  • Fresh ginger: Balances the fruity flavors, adds a fresh bite and is great for digestive health.
  • Cinammon: Adds some warmth and sweetness to the smoothie.
