This Orange Chia Smoothie tastes just like an Orange Creamsicle!

Jump to Recipe

At the smoothie cafe, my first job, there was a smoothie that was similar to this recipe.  I remember the yogurt that was in that recipe was liquid and we pumped it into the smoothies.  The recipe I have for you contains chia seeds, and no liquid, pumpable, yogurt.

Last year was the year of “Green Juices and Smoothies”, this year is chia seeds.  Ch-Ch-Chia Pets? who remembers that?  Yes, they are the same!  When it comes to purchasing chia seeds, they can be found in various grocery stores, including Wal-Mart and Aldi.  Chia seeds have many benefits including:

  • aid in sleeping
  • contain antioxidants, vitamins, omega-3 oil, fiber, and minerals
  • aids in curbing appetite
  • fiber

This Orange Chia smoothie has fresh oranges that have been peeled, orange juice, Greek yogurt, honey, vanilla, and ice.
