Recipe: Chocolate Banana Juice Plus+ Complete Smoothie

Chocolate Banana Juice Plus Complete Smoothie.

1 cups ice cubes
1 - 2 cups Organic SILK Soy Milk, Vanilla Almond Milk, Rice Milk, or Coconut Milk  (I don’t prefer Cow’s milk)
1 -2 Bananas (frozen)
1 scoop chocolate JP Complete powder
1 Tablespoon Natural Peanut butter (Optional – but I love the “Reeses” taste with PNB in it!!)
1-2 Tbsp. ground flax seed (optional, for additional omega 3’s.)
                    Put ice, soy milk, and banana in the blender. Blend until smooth.  Add flax seed and chocolate powder. Blend just until mixed in. That's it! It's delicious and the healthiest meal that you could make for yourself in less than 60 seconds.
             *Actually, I don't measure anything. I put ice cubes into the blender. Then I add soymilk to almost cover the ice, and throw in the frozen bananas.
 *Also, if your bananas are getting over-ripe, peel them, slice them and put them into baggies in the freezer. They make your JP Smoothies much creamier, smooth, and icy. Yum.  I always use FROZEN bananas!
             Also, if you add flaxseed, be sure that your flaxseed is ground. (Whole Golden flax seed passes through the digestive tract undigested, so Grind it yourself in a Coffee mill.) Do not buy pre-ground flax seeds.  Grind it just before adding to your smoothie to protect the Omega-3's.  And keep flax seed in the refrigerator. Flax seeds provide many benefits: (Omega-3's -Good for hormones, heart, cancer fighters, Lignans-Cancer fighters and additional fiber.)
