1/2 cup – ¾ cup frozen or fresh fruit of your choice (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, melons, bananas, grapes, oranges, and apples work great)
½ cup plain unsweetened yogurt OR ½ cup rice milk or almond milk
1 scoop protein powder (optional – available at health food stores)
1 tbsp flax seeds, freshly ground
Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor and blend until smooth. You may have to add a little more rice milk or unsweetened fruit juice to get it to the right consistency. You can also add a teaspoon of flax seed oil or fish oil if you want.
At first, the smoothie may not taste very sweet because there will be no added sugar. Enjoy the great flavor of the naturally sweet fresh fruit!
