Didn't realize how much I had missed my ubiquitous breakfast until I got back from the holidays and indulged once more. And it's a good sort of indulgence--no guilt, just joy!
So here it is, my recipe for a joyous start to a fabulous day:
Put in a blender:
1/4 to 1/3 c. frozen blueberries3 large or a few small frozen strawberries1 banana
1/4 to 1/3 c. ground flax seed
enough orange juice to blend it all together to the consistency you like.Blend, beginning at a low speed, moving up to moderate speed as things are pureed, ending on high speed for a little "fluff" action. How sweet or tart it is depends in great part on the time of year and the stawberries you use.Lots of fiber, some healthy Omega 3s, and your first serving of fruit for the day. Plus it's easy and tastes a treat! Enjoy!
And props to Lori and Bob in Vermont who introduced me to this smoothie in the first place--you created a monster!!
