Smoothie Time

I love have smoothies in the morning either pre or post work out.  It is so easy just to throw everything in a blender and have a healthy breakfast. I was going through some old cookbooks and I came across a section called drink your way to health, (and no it wasn't about wine :)  Anyways they had a ton of new ideas for smoothies.  I found the perfect smoothie everyone, and its called a "Kinango Smoothie."  This recipe has been adapted from Superfoods by Jyl Steinback, which is a great cookbook!!!!

1/2 banana
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup strawberries
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup mango nectar
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 T. ground flaxseed
if needed a couple ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth and creamy.  Leftover can be refrigerated and reblended next day.
