Triple Berry-Banana Power Smoothie
Mornings are always busy for me, even during the summer. I try to check emails while I drink coffee then I immediately start in on cleaning and laundry. Next up is getting ready to feed the guys lunch.

I like to give them a lot of variety and of course fresh baked cookies. You won't find the same brown bag bologna sandwiches everyday in my kitchen. Most days I find myself forgetting to eat breakfast.
If I have to pack the guys lunches and deliver them sometimes it's twelve-thirty or one o'clock before I get around to eating lunch myself.
So, I've started making myself a smoothie that I can sip on while I'm cooking and doing the laundry and all of that good stuff. I also love this Banana Watermelon Smoothie, so refreshing and delicious!
My Mom is always singing the praises of flax and how good it is for you, so I thought I'd add it to my smoothie and it really made it extra filling.
I would probably put about ½ tablespoon of flax meal next time just for a little less texture. You can try it out and see how you like it. It's extra thick, creamy and berry delicious!
