Strawberry Banana Chia Seed Smoothies

I love chia seeds, they are a super food, full of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants and fiber and they are so versatile. I first tried chia seeds this past January, and since then I’ve been having a lot of fun creating all sorts of recipes using chia seeds. So far, I’ve shared my Coconut Almond Chia Seed Pudding, my Orange Creamsicle Chia Seed Parfaits and my Chocolate Banana Chia Seed Smoothies. Today, I have another smoothie recipe to share, these delicious Strawberry Banana Chia Seed Smoothies.

Strawberry and banana is one of my favorite combinations for smoothies and I thought chia seeds would be a nice addition, and they certainly are. The chia seeds don’t affect the flavor, rather they add another textural element as well as additional nutrients including protein, fiber and anti-oxidants, making a healthy smoothie even healthier.

Strawberry season hasn’t quite started yet here in Massachusetts, but we’ve been getting some wonderful sweet strawberries from California in the supermarkets. I like to keep a large carton in the refrigerator at all times, for my strawberry loving twin 3 year old girls. Fresh strawberries disappear quickly at our house but sometimes there is enough for me to make something such as my Strawberry Shortcake Scones or these delicious smoothies.

I also like to keep a stash of frozen banana chunks in my freezer for making smoothies, as I wrote about in my Chocolate Banana Chia Seed Smoothies post. I love using frozen banana chunks in smoothies because then you don’t need to add ice, which can melt and water the smoothies down. Using frozen banana chunks makes for really creamy, luscious, smoothies, but without adding any fat.

  4. What a great smoothie!!
    Strawberry season is over by now, but I have good frozen ones. I just might try this recipe 🙂 I do have chia seeds

  5. I have used Chia Seeds in a lot of stuff, but never in a smoothy! This looks SO refreshing! Where I live anything that is COLD is fair game to eat and this would be right at the top of the list!

  6. Sounds perfect. We do a lot of smoothies mid day here. Now, if I can just figure out a way to hide the strawberries so they are not eaten before we can make these I’ll be all set!

  7. Okay, I’m not a huge fan of the strawberry banana combo, but your smoothie looks delicious!! And I love the little dish. Do you know the pattern?

    • Thanks Christie! I’m afraid I don’t know the pattern of that little dish, I inherited it, along with many other wonderful dishes, from my late grandmother and there are no markings or words on the dish to indicate where it’s from. But I will ask my mom, when she gets back form her latest travel adventure, and see if she knows! 🙂

  8. This sounds wonderful. I have been trying chia seeds too, and I like them in smoothies. I will give this a try after my workout tomorrow!

  9. This sounds awesome! I just got a large container of chia seeds and have been trying to find a bunch of different ways to use them. I think this would be really yummy, and I just bought some strawberries, bananas, Greek yogurt, and almond milk. Can’t wait to give it a try! Pinning right now. Thanks!

  10. Looks so delicious. My doctor just talked about adding Chia seeds to my diet efforts. Thanks for sharing. I pinned to two boards. 🙂

    • Hi AnnMarie, I hope you give this a try and enjoy! Be sure to put some peeled bananas in the freezer the night before you make these, so you have some nice frozen banana chunks for your smoothies 🙂
