Peanut butter and strawberry chia jelly smoothie
After a tough workout, like one of these brutal CrossFit WODs, you've more than earned yourself a sweet treat. This smoothie is the perfect post-workout, guilt-free indulgence, becuase, not only does it taste delicious, it's packed with protein-rich chia seeds and Greek yogurt.

½ cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
½ medium bananas ripe, frozen (about 2 cups)
¼ cup non-fat Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp peanut powder
¼ cup unsweetened milk (almond, cashew, soy, coconut or dairy)
¼ cup ice cubes
How to make it
To make the strawberry chia jam: Puree the strawberries in a blender until smooth, about 15 seconds. If the strawberries are frozen, microwave the berries in a bowl for 2 minutes before blending. Transfer puree to a bowl, and mix with 2 tablespoons chia seeds. Stir, and then allow to sit for 20 minutes for a slightly thickened jelly, or 1 hour for a thicker jelly. Refrigerate if you are not using right away. This can be made up to 5 days in advance, especially if you like to meal prep.
To make the peanut butter smoothie: Rinse the blender, and add frozen bananas broken into smaller pieces, yogurt, peanut butter powder, milk, and ice. Puree until smooth, about 60 to 90 seconds. Add the desired amount of strawberry chia jelly and peanut butter smoothie to a glass. Mix together, and serve.
