A smoothie is a smart way to start your day, especially
when it includes this tasty mix of foods for better blood sugar.
- 2 tablespoons whole flaxseeds
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup unsweetened frozen mixed berries or blueberries
- 1 small banana, sliced
Flaxseeds may seem like an unusual addition, but they blend in seamlessly and make this breakfast drink an excellent source of fiber.[/factoid]
Time = 5 minutes
Place the flaxseeds in dry blender, cover, and blend until ground into a fine powder. Add the orange juice, yogurt, mixed berries (or blueberries), and banana. Cover and blend until smooth and creamy.
