Basically a "What's in the freezer" quick meal in a cup - and rather annoying to have something with no added refined sugars (barring the small amount in the kefir!) called "Very High In Sugar". I refuse to be guilted over fruit and protein heavy dairy!

Recipe Ingredients for Fruity Smoothie

2 tsp Chia Seed
1/4 cup orange juice
2/3 cup strawberries (frozen)
2/3 cup blueberries (frozen)
1/2 cup mandarin orange (frozen)
6 oz Greek Yogurt
1/3 cup LowFat Peach Kefir

Recipe Directions for Fruity Smoothie

  1. Orange juice, kefir, and yogurt into the blender first - add chia seeds and allow to 'bloom' for 5 minutes to soften.

  2. Dump in fruit (that has been allowed to thaw slightly on the counter while the chia softens).

  3. Blitz until smooth and air has been incorporated.

  4. Pour into glass, add a straw, and wander about the house secure in the knowledge you won't be yelled at by a well-meaning spouse for forgetting to eat again.
