Banana-Apple Protein Shake


This is a favorite breakfast - a smoothie full of whole fruit, protein and calcium. It's as thick as a milkshake with an addictive sweet-nutty flavor. And it's good for you.  What's not to love?

Banana-Apple Protein Shake

1 banana
1 crisp, sweet red apple, cored and quartered {skin on}
1 T flax meal
1 T all natural almond butter {ground roasted almonds and nothing more}
1/2 c low fat Greek yogurt {I think Wallaby organic is the best}
1/2 c unsweetened almond milk

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  Check the consistency.  I like the thickness so I stop here. If you want to thin it out, blend in some ice cubes or water, 1/4 c at a time until you have the consistency you like.

Serves 1-2, depending on your appetite.
