Smoothies 101

My favorite treat for breakfast is a smoothie. I have found a basic formula that always produces a perfect smoothie.

The Perfect Smoothie

1/2 c. crushed ice
1 banana (preferably frozen)
1 c. fresh fruit of your choice (strawberries, blueberries, mangoes, apples, etc.)
1/2 c. yogurt (flavor of your choice)
1/2 c. milk
2 Tbsp. honey
Flavoring of your choice - (any combination... example - 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, etc.)

Add ingredients into a blender in order. Blend until smooth and creamy. Serve at once.

NOTE: To increase the the nutritional value you can also add 1 Tbsp. ground flax seed or 2 Tbsp. Old Fashoned Oats or 1 Tbsp. oat bran or wheat germ.
