What a healthy smoothies recipe, strawberry is in season for us, I guess I can switch to that. Thanks for sharing.
Oh I love chia seeds! Thanks for the recipe!
I was a little sceptical about trying this when I first made it because of the strange combination of tastes, but it was definitely a good choice to try it anyway. This is a great healthy snack to have between meals.
Wow, what a great recipe. It tasted amazing!
