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.
- 6 ounces light vanilla yogurt (or your favorite flavor)
- 1 tablespoon oat bran
- 1⁄2 tablespoon flax seed oil
- 1 (1 g) packet Splenda sugar substitute
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (not the artificial stuff)
- 1 lemon, juice of
- 6 ounces frozen mixed berries
- 2⁄3 cup skim milk
- 1⁄3 cup water
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
- Experiment with yougurt-berry combinations. I use mixed berries, blueberries, or rasberries regularly. I also mix up the yougurt flavors to keep from getting boring.
- This is also great with the following substitutions.
- * 1/2 teaspoon almond extract for the vanilla.
- * 8 ounces frozen peaches for the berries.
- approximate Diabetic exchanges:.
- 2 dairy.
- 2 fruit.
- 1 fat.

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.
Nice protein smoothie! This made 2 one cup servings for me. Thanks for posting.
