Low Sugar Strawberry Smoothie | Dairy-Free | Smoothie without Yogurt

When you have organic strawberries, you can blend them directly into this Low Sugar Strawberry Smoothie without removing the green stems- talk about a time-saver!  This chia seeds thicken the longer they sit in the smoothie, ensuring a thick and luscious drink.  No watered down or icy consistency here 😊

Serves: 1

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 0

What (your ingredients):

1 cup organic strawberries

½ cup frozen banana

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tablespoon chia seeds

How (your directions):

In a highspeed blender, blend strawberries, banana, and almond milk.

Pour into a cup, then stir in chia seeds.

Enjoy immediately, take on the go, or save for later!

Why (the science):  Chia seeds are fiber powerhouses, which means they slow the rate of digestion.  No sugar highs and crashes, just a slow release of refreshing energy!  This Low Sugar Strawberry Smoothie is also made with unsweetened almond milk instead of juice, which helps cut down on a lot of sugar, too.
