We drink a lot of smoothies year round. Hubs makes them for the kids in the am, great way to get them to eat breakfast. Great as an afternoon snack also. There are so many different recipes for smoothies. We use whatever fruit we have on hand, you can also use soy milk or rice milk instead of orange juice.
1 banana, frozen or fresh
1 cup vanilla fat-free yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons flax seed meal, optional
2/3 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
- 1/2 cup orange juice or any flavor juice you prefer
- Cut banana into small pieces and place into the bowl of a blender. Add the juice, yogurt, and flax seed meal. Blend on lowest speed until smooth, about 5 seconds. Gradually add the blueberries while continuing to blend on low. Once the blueberries have been incorporated, increase speed, and blend to desired consistency. Pour into glass. Serve with whipped cream if desired.
Serves 1-2 depending on the size of glass that you are serving.
