How to Make a Nutella Smoothie

  1. Cut 1/2 ripe to very ripe banana and 4 large Strawberries into medium-sized slices, and drop into small kitchen blender.
  2. Pour in 2/3 cup cold, plain almond milk, followed by 1 tablespoon of black Chia seeds. Stir lightly with a spoon to make sure the Chia seeds blend into the almond milk.
  3. Add 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt.
  4. Add 1/2 tablespoon of Nutella.
  5. Liquify the mixture by blending at medium speed until the ingredients are smooth and pink from the strawberries.
  6. Pour into a glass and enjoy right away or store it a sealed container in the refrigerator, for no more that 1 day to preserve freshness and the nutritional value of all the healthy ingredients.
  7. As the Chia seeds soak up the liquid in the shake, the drink will become thicker, and the ingredients may separate slightly. If this happens, simply mix lightly with a spoon and enjoy!

What makes a Nutella smoothie ideal as a healthy breakfast treat for people on the go? This smoothie is packed with healthy vitamins and minerals, fiber, and protein.

  • Banana provides more potassium than any other fruit. Potassium energizes tired muscles, prevents cramps, and can help protect against stroke. Using bananas that are ripe or starting to brown will give your smoothie a naturally sweet taste.
  • Strawberries are a rich source of vitamin C
  • Chia seeds have more calcium than milk, and they're also known as a complete protein source. Protein helps keep you feeling satisfied. Chia seeds are also a high source of magnesium, fiber and heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Greek yogurt has less fat than regular yogurt and twice as much protein.
  • Almond milk is high in calcium and has no cholesterol or saturated fat, but it's high in healthy fats such as Omega-3. It contains Vitamin E (good for your skin), and B vitamins which are good for muscle growth and mental alertness.

Why not try experimenting with different smoothie ingredients and come up with your own one-of-a-kind Nutella recipe. Here are few healthy suggestions:

Blueberries -- full of antioxidants, helps build bones and fight osteoporosis

Raspberries: high in fiber (one cup contains 1/3 of your daily recommended fiber)

Dark Chocolate: eases emotional stress and boosts libido; anti-oxidants help fight disease

Flax seeds (instead of Chia seeds): excellent source of fiber, magnesiusm, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids

Honey: rich in B vitamins and has natural anti-bacterial properties Note: Honey is not recommended for infants.

Cinnamon: lowers blood sugar and helps control your appetite

Here are some divine desserts and sweets that can be made with Nutella:

  • Fudge
  • Macarons
  • Crepes
  • Cheesecake
  • Cupcakes
  • Pancakes
