Strawberry Banana Chia Smoothie

If you didn’t know it was January, you could probably tell by what’s currently posted on pinterest or foodgawker.  Everyone is busting out healthy recipes.   I am feeling guilty over indulging too much over the holidays so I am trying to fix that and eat better.  Or drink better-like smoothies!!! They aren’t normally a part of my morning routine but I like to have it once in a while.  It’s a special treat & shakes things up!!! 

I quite enjoyed this smoothie.   You can’t go wrong with a strawberry-banana flavor.  I thought it would be a little thin at first but the chia seeds & oats seem to thicken it up.  A little bit of vanilla helps round it out even more so don’t skimp on that.  It left me feeling full for a very long time after!
