Banana, Strawberry & Chia Seeds Smoothie

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. :P

    Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment
    (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
