Off The Counter: Almond Berry Smoothie

I've gone from juicing to blending and I finally came up with a concoction that's just right, at least for me.  It's neither too sweet nor too bland, but simply good for you.  Ingredients and instructions below:


Almond milk (vanilla), frozen bananas, fresh or frozen berries, flaxseed meal and protein powder (optional)


Pour 1 cup of almond milk into the blender, add half of a frozen banana, 1/2 cup of berries, 1 tablespoon of flaxseed  meal and 4-6 oz of protein powder or Vega's energizing smoothie mix [see below].  Blend, pour and enjoy!

I alternate between vanilla whey protein and Vega's energizing smoothie mix wich has additional fiber, omega-3's and veggies.

If you've been firing up the blender lately [and not just for margaritas] please share your favorite combination with me.
