How to Smoothie or Your Blender is not just for booze

Okie dokie... My new favorite thing to make is the Smooooooothieeee!

There's a gazillion different recipes out there and here's mine.

1 cup fat free vanilla yogurt

1/4-1/2 cup skim milk

1 cup frozen fruit

1/4 cup berry puree (I make this up in my "spare time" so there's no seeds in it)

2 tbsp ground flax

1 scoop protein powder.

2-3 tbsp agave or honey

add to blender, you might need more or less milk to get it going. Blend until smooooooth. Enjoy!

Now I can hear some of you thinking "Um WTF is with Lish and the Fat Free dairy!?"... well this year, I was told I had high cholesterol (saaad face). Which means low fat dairy, even less meat than I already eat, and enough bloody oatmeal to knock over a Scotsman. You will see some of this madness reflected in my recipes from now on. Besides that, I'm bloody FAT, so it's not going to kill me to eat the "light" crap for awhile. ALSO, this smoothie has between 400 and 500 calories AS IS! So if you're bent on using the full fat dairy, BEWARE! You could be blasting down a 700 calorie beverage just for breakfast. Some smoothie recipes can hide up to 1000 calories in their yummy yummy goodness... they are gooood though, aren't they ;)
