Banana Chia Smoothie

Although bananas contain fructose they also contain an equal amount of glucose which means that moderate amounts of banana can be absorbed without symptoms as the glucose acts as a carrier of the fructose through the body. Ripe bananas are more readily absorbed.

2 tblsp Chia seeds*
1 tblsp Oat Bran

Serve and enjoy!
