Breakfast Smoothie

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Herricks

When I became diabetic, I needed to work out a satisfying breakfast that wouldn't tax my blood sugar. Follow the smoothie with one piece of whole-grain bread and 1 tbs reduced fat, natural style peanut butter (I use Smucker's). You can't go wrong.

At first I thought this had too much lemon juice in it, but it "grew" on me and tasted just fine. I used raspberries and blackberries. Good way to get your flax oil. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
