How to make this Strawberry Banana Chia Seed Smoothie! (Video)
While I LOVE smoothies, I tend to be pretttttty lazy when it comes to making breakfast. Well, any meal, for that matter. Not because I consider myself a lazy girl, but because I always feel like I’m super limited on time in the morning. And okkkkk, if we’re being completely honest, I don’t really like having to wash the blender all of the time. Does anyone else majorly consider how many dishes you’ll have to wash after making a recipe? It’s make it or break it for me!
What’s in this Strawberry Banana Chia Seed Smoothie?
- Frozen Strawberries
- Fresh Banana (frozen is fine, too)
- Chia Seeds
- Milk Of Choice (almond milk is great, but regular milk is awesome for added protein if you’re not avoiding dairy!)
That’s it! So easy, y’all.
Why add chia seeds to this smoothie?
They’re are so great for you! Incorporating chia seeds not only adds a fun texture to the smoothie, but it also adds protein and healthy fats. I’m loading up on these beauties in this smoothie!
My second trimester self can definitely use all of the omega-3’s and healthy fats I can get right now!
