Post-Run Berry Banana Smoothie

I went for a long run this morning, and when I run in the hot Atlanta summertime, the last few miles all I can think about is the icy cold fruit I'm going to devour when I get back.

I think about almost-frozen chunks of cantaloupe and watermelon, cold orange wedges, and icy fruit smoothies (possibly spiked :-)).

This morning, I made a banana berry smoothie.  I don't want to insult your intelligence, but I'll include the ingredients.

1 banana
couple handfuls frozen blueberries
tsp flax seed
Tbsp peanut butter
a little water

Blend till smooth and frothy!

The green smoothie I made a while back. It's a collard green smoothie! Though it was quite refreshing and tasty, I do not recommend using collard greens in smoothies unless you want to choke yourself. I recommend a more tender green, like wheatgrass or spinach or what have you. But nice color, right?
