Do you ever just get tired of eating breakfast? Yeah, me too. I’m not too keen on smoothies, however I thought I would try this Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Vitamix Breakfast Smoothie. I do have to say that it pretty much filled me up almost immediately after I drank it and it kept me full for quite sometime, unlike if I were to eat cereal or something similar. I even think kids would love it. And guess what, it’s healthy! :) ENJOY!
