Chocolate Banana Smoothie


HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season! Filled with love and laughter.

It's been awhile! I thought maybe I could get away with not mentioning our lack of posts...and maybe we can...but I think we owe you an apology. So we're sorry for the meager attempt at posting lately.

December was a busy month and it just seemed as though whenever we made something the lighting wasn't know how it can be ;)

But we're back with a yummy breakfast or anytime smoothie that is nutritious as well as delicious! Just right for keeping all those new year resolutions for a healthy 2012!

It's going to be a great year and what better way to start off each morning of the new year than with a simple, fast and tasty smoothie!

The ingredients are simple which is ideal for busy mornings and the end product is great!! You can customize this smoothie however you like to boost up its benefits! We don't have any protein powders on hand right now but if you do by all means add a scoop!

Almond milk can be substituted for the milk in order to make this smoothie vegan!!

There is no real recipe for this smoothie...I just threw it together one night so you can adjust the quantities to your liking especially since these ratios are adapted to the single shot magic bullet.

1 tbsp flax seed meal
