Healthy Eating: Banana Orange Breakfast Smoothie

My New Year’s resolution is to be more consistent in all aspects of my life; including diet and exercise.  Im trading in my cappuccino pancakes for healthier meals like this easy banana orange breakfast smoothie with chia seeds.

Chia seeds are similar to poppy seeds in size but are jam packed with fiber and Omega-3.  Just one tablespoon gives you 4 grams of fiber.  They dont have a taste and can be added to almost anything.  The seeds absorb water and become gel-like which helps keep you full.

Pretty cool, right?  I added them to my smoothie and didnt even notice they were there.  My smoothie had:

one banana, one clementine, 1/2 cup of milk, one packet of sweetener, some ice and some chia seeds.


Mix in the blender and enjoy.  I like my smoothies to be on the thick side – makes me feel like Im drinking a milkshake.

Im excited to experiment with other fruit to create new smoothies.  I think I can be consistent in drinking one of these delicious smoothies every day.

    Looks interesting. I wonder if my kids would drink it. (I can’t stand banana!). Mostly we eat whole wheat (or home made) toast and eggs for breakfast. Typically some fruit as well. Happy Tuesday and good luck with your New Years Resolutions!

    This looks healthy and delicious! My go to breakfast is a piece of fruit usually a banana when I get to work, we have a fruit box delivered each week so there’s no excuse for me not to get my intake of fruit each day :)
