Questions about banana and raspberry smoothies

Not a smoothie pro? Or new to chia seeds? Not to worry, we have got you covered! Read on to discover how to make this delicious lactose-free banana and raspberry smoothie.

What is a raspberry chia jam banana smoothie?
This lactose-free banana and raspberry smoothie is both delicious and visually appealing, consisting of a creamy base made with bananas, lactose-free milk, and yogurt – with an added swirl of raspberry chia jam. The jam is made with fresh raspberries and chia seeds, which create a thick and flavourful jam that can be swirled into the banana smoothie to add a burst of fruity tartness and texture.
Can you use frozen raspberries in a banana and raspberry smoothie?
Using frozen raspberries is a great option for making chia jam with this recipe, and they work just as well as fresh raspberries. They are also often available year-round. To ensure the chia seeds expand and create a jam-like texture, consider thawing the frozen berries for a short time before blending.
Can you make banana and raspberry smoothie ahead of time?
While this frozen treat is best enjoyed when it is still cold and creamy, you can also store it in the fridge overnight and enjoy it on the-go in the morning. Alternatively, you can freeze it in portion-sized freezer bags or containers, so you have some for later.
