Beginning from the past weekend, I have been making banana smoothie for breakfast. I am trying to take breakfast seriously and this super easy and fruit laden smoothie has been a great motivator. It is surprisingly filling and I have been feeling a bit more energetic than usual ever since (perhaps it’s psychological hehe!).
The beauty of homemade smoothie is that it can be jam-packed with fruits. I sometimes find smoothies from the shops do not contain as much fruits as I would like. They tend to be heavier on the fruit juices, sorbet and yoghurt which can be a wee bit too sweet. Having said that, I did enjoy my fair share of adding sorbet and flavoured yogurt in my smoothie. Whoops!
Since this is my breakfast smoothie, I want to keep it simple and as wholesome as possible. For a start I remove the sorbet from the equation as I wonder how others feel about me starting the day with sorbet in my smoothie. 😛

Oh, thanks very much for posting this! It is going to help when I get Chia Seeds at the grocery store! Cool!
Is it better to soak the chai seeds before use? Thanks.
Hi Rolando, there is no need to soak the chia seeds as I used it as a topping for added wholesomeness to the smoothie.
the picture is the same ! Though the recipe is different.. o.o?
Thanks for letting me know Chloe. She used my photo without giving me credit, this is not cool!
