Blueberry Bananna Smoothie

a modified Whole Foods recipe

Add ground flax for omega 3's, fiber and protein.

Serves 2
1 ripe fresh or frozen banana, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
6 oz blueberry yogurt
3/4 cup milk or plain soy milk
1 TB finely ground flax seed
1 TB protein powder, optional
1/2 cup ice cubes, optional

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and whirl at top speed for approximately one minute or until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy. When making fruit smoothies, adding ice to the blender is a matter of personal choice. If you are using frozen fruit in place of fresh fruit you may elect to omit the ice.
