My only real effort at being healthy is skipping the waffles in the morning and replacing them with smoothies. But if I'm going to skip the heavy carbs for blended fruit, it better have a little more substance to it. That's why this smoothie has chia seeds and oatmeal, so you won't get that fruit-cleanse-hunger thing goin' on an hour after you eat it.
And if you remember these smoothies that I made a while ago, you'll remember that you can make these ahead of time. So much easier than making juice :)
