INGREDIENTS: 

  • 1 1/4 cups orange juice, preferably calcium-fortified or Apple Juice makes it just as delicious.
  • 1 banana
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen or fresh berries, such as raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and/or strawberries
  • 1/2 cup low-fat silken tofu, or low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, or Splenda Granular (optional)
  • Tea Spoon of Chia Seeds

**NOTE: If using fresh fruit add in ice cubes to the blender, but if using frozen fruit no need for ice.  And as a personal opinion, I think it tastes just as delicious without any added sugar or sweetener. 🙂

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine orange juice, banana, berries, tofu (or yogurt) and sugar (or Splenda), if using, in a blender; cover and blend until creamy. Serve immediately.

*** I personally love this shake. It is a delicious shake to have instead eating a snack. It satisfy your hunger cravings in between meals.  The Chia Seeds that are added helps with your cravings and they give you energy. I know every time I drink it I do feel more energy. I drink it every time I feel like I need a boost instead of drinking a cup of coffee.
