Serves 1 / This creamy, protein- and antioxidant-filled smoothie is a fortifying way to begin the day. Whole flaxseed, which provides essential fats and fiber, can be ground in a coffee grinder or bought as flaxmeal. For a tangy flavor, substitute fruit juice for the soy milk.

1 cup plain soy milk
2 tablespoons nonfat plain or vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
1/4 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1/3 frozen banana
1-2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
3 ice cubes

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
