Chia Pudding with Strawberry Smoothie

In the morning, sometimes it takes a long time for me to decide what to eat, and what to do. Do you feel me? Especially on the weekends, or anytime I have a day off from work. I love simple and easy breakfast on my free day. Anyway, it’s strawberry season here now in Australia, you could find it cheap at the market. Most of the times I drink smoothie for breakfast, it’s super convinient and less time consuming. Last weekend, I felt like something puddingy and creamy, so I made chia pudding, and mixed with strawberry smoothie. Yeah they turn out pretty good!

I topped with some blackberries and strawberries. It’s refreshing and surely will brighten up your day. You can add whatever you like, I think coconut yogurt will go alright with this, what do you think? Or even with some granolas?
