Very Berry Smoothie

Increase your daily intake of fruits with one easy drink, it takes less than 3 min. to make this smoothie. A healthy breakfast smoothie is a well-rounded fuel to power you through your day. It can also take the place of dessert or an afternoon snack. The secret to a great tasting smoothie is using frozen fruit which will yield thicker, more flavorful results. Not only is frozen fruit cheaper, frozen food has just as much if not more nutritional value than the "fresh"fruit you find on the shelves. This is because frozen fruits such as blueberries and strawberries are picked at their peak of freshness, while most fruit sold in stores is picked way before it's ripe so it doesn't expire before reaching the store shelves. Less time to ripen means less time to be fully enriched with all the nutrients that nature provides during the ripening process.

1 small banana
1/2 cup soy milk
1 scoop soy protein (unflovared-unsweetened)
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened berries (rasperry, blackberry, strawberry)
1/3 pomegranate juice
1/3 crushed ice

1. Put all ingredients in a blender.
2. Blend for about 10 seconds or until all ingredients are smooth
3. Enjoy!
