Smooth Moves

It's "What's for Breakfast?" today!

We're just in the mood for something healthy but different than the cold ceral routine we frequent on a busy mornings.

During the summers of plenty, we harvest fresh peaches from the trees and fresh raspberries from the garden and keep them handy for breakfast smoothies.  Also, a great thing to do with the bananas once they're a little past their prime, is just take them out of the skins and pop them into the freezer in zipper baggies to add to smoothies.  You can add a little flax seed, and fiber to increase the nutritional value even more.

I try to keep the sugar down, but we did use orange juice and a little sherbet today.  Usually it would be sugar-free low fat yogurt with a little skim milk and we'd skip the sherbet and juice.

Smoothies for Two

1 C. frozen peaches
1 C. frozen raspberries
1 frozen banana
3 t. fiber
3 t. flax seed
1 C. orange juice (or skim milk)
1/2 C. frozen sherbet of your choice (or one 6-oz lowfat sugar free yogurt)
Garnish with a little mint from the garden


So yummy!

I put flax in my smoothies but I never thought of putting fiber in, great idea!
