Recipe: Strawberry banana chia bowl

I've got to be honest with you, breakfast for me is usually an absurd amount of coffee and a smores flavored Quest bar (those are GREAT, by the way). But on the days where I'm putting a little more effort in, my go-to is a chia bowl. Chia bowls FTW.

Also important to know, I'm terrible at eating bananas on time. Without fail, every time I buy bananas, they end up ALMOST going bad, so I'm forced to eat four in a day or freeze them. So the last time I made chia bowls, naturally I had extra bananas to use.

If you like strawberry banana anything, this chia bowl is for you. It's really easy to make, and the flavor will wake you up and help start your day off on the right foot. And it looks great on camera if that's your thing.
