Ingredients

    2 small (6-7" long fruitmeat) Bananas, fresh, broken into chunks if you like
    1 cup fat free plain greek yogurt
    1 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries, unthawed but make sure the ice chunks are not large; if you break the berries apart that is a good size
    2 tbsp ground flax meal
    1 cup fresh baby spinach (you may use frozen but fresh is better)

Directions

In any kind of blender, first blend chunks of banana and the NONfat greek yogurt, then add the frozen blueberries, making sure to break the ice chunks up prior to adding them to the mixture.
Add 2 tbsp of flax meal (ground flax) and one cup of baby spinach. Continue blending, stopping frequently to push the dryer ingredients down to the bottom of your mixer.
When the mixture swirls down in the center and you don't see any dry chunks coming back to the surface, stop mixing.
This smoothie is made to be very thick; if you want a thinner mixture, add nonfat milk or substitute it for the greek yogurt; the milk is about half the protein of the greek yogurt. You'll have to recalculate your nutrition if you make that addition/substitution. You may also leave out one half of the bananas, but your smoothie will not be as sweet.
This recipe is meant to result in two servings, but you may like it so much you want to eat it all. You'll get lots of protein, but those calories add up too!
