breakFAST smoothie

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm not too fond on making & eating breakfast. At least, not as soon as I wake up. However, whenever there is fresh fruit in the house, I load up on whatever we have and throw it into a blender to come up with this: (not a great photo, but you get it)There's never a precise list of ingredients. When it comes to deliciously mouth watering, juicy fruits does it really matter? Wait, that sounded like a starburst commercial:( They all taste fantastic and when in season they're even better! With these smoothies you're guaranteed to get your daily intake of fruit. This morning's concoction consisted of:

~banana
~lots of fresh strawberries
~pineapple & some of the juice
~orange juice (the Simply brand. i'm a juice snob and don't really like the taste of others)
~ground flax seed (for my dose of Omega3 fatty acids)

put it all in a blender and let it go! Try playing with the ingredient amounts and the type of fruit you use. Delicioso!
other fruits to consider:
~peaches, blackberries, raspberries, mango, the list goes on. Really anything that is fleshy & not hard will work great!
You could also add yogurt, plain or flavored. I don't do flavored because most have gelatin in them and well, I don't eat gelatin (that's a whole post in itself). You can also use water or other flavored juices.
