Protein Fruit Smoothie!

If you don't want your smoothie to be a milkshake in disguise try this one worthy of posting.

Note:  When you have fruit and it is either too ripe or you don't want to waste it,  simply chop and freeze for a later date. (Bananas, strawberries, blueberries and the like).

 You can make a quick smoothie with them  by adding a little juice and  yogurt for protein.  Want to make it really healthy throw in a 1/4 cup fresh spinach and blend.  The fruit masks the taste and you get all the healthy nutrients.   Healthy does it! 

1 1/4 cups fresh berries
3/4 cup yogurt, low-fat plain or vanilla
1/2 cup orange juice
2 T fat free milk or coconut or almond milk
1 T wheat germ, toasted(optional)
1 T honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract(if you aren't using vanilla yogurt)
1/4 cup packed fresh spinach(optional)

Place berries, yogurt, orange juice and optional fruit and vegetables choices in a blender.  Add a little crushed ice and blend until smooth.
