If you know you're going to have a hectic week, make this smoothie in advance for snacks and lunches. Strawberries, banana and blueberries come together for a low-fat, fiber-filled, nutritious smoothie. The chia seeds do an awesome job thickening this smoothie to keep you full until your next meal, and the honey adds just the right amount of sweetness you're craving.
- If using frozen fruit, omit the ice. Otherwise, the ice thickens and cools the smoothie.
- If you have leftovers, re-blend with more ice the next day to thicken the smoothie that has settled.
