My new favorite smoothie

So good.

Smoothies are the perfect antidote to holiday overeating. They are a healthy, light breakfast (or even dessert) - perfect to offset that enormous dinner you'll be eating tomorrow night (sans turkey, I hope!). This one is my new favorite, inspired by one I had at Jamba Juice on my trip over the weekend. I daresay mine is as good or better than theirs. I'm not going to give exact quantities because I change it up depending on how many smoothies I'm making, but here are the ingredients. (Use about a handful of each fruit per person.)

frozen banana chunks
frozen strawberries
frozen mango
pomegranate juice, frozen in ice cube trays
ground flax seed (1 tablespoon per person)
apple juice (I ran out of apple juice and had to use grape juice this time, but I like apple better)

Blend all ingredients and enjoy!

Sounds yummy, thanks for sharing! I'll have to figure out a way to replace the bananas in there (I get anaphalactic allergic reactions with bananas, pears, melons and also grape juice) - maybe a bit of crushed ice will help thicken it up a bit.

I'll go raid the fridge and mix myself something :)
