banana nut smoothie

I love it when food is both delicious and easy to make. This smoothie is so nice in the morning. Really, truly delicious. I just had this, and I might be glowing.

You change the ingredients around to suit your taste.

Banana nut smoothie:

1 large banana (or two small)
1 tsp. cinnamon
8-10 walnut halves
4-6 ice cubes
4 oz. low fat vanilla yogurt

Blend or process until smooth.

How easy is that? Its kind of thick, but if you want to thin it out add some skim milk. Also, for a nutrition boost add a tablespoon of ground flax seeds. You could also use pumpkin puree instead of bananas.

This looks delicious. I love smoothies, and this one would be great for those old bananas that sometimes get thrown out!! Thanks!

I thought this recipe was so awesome I put it on my blog! :)

I'm going to cut the amount of walnuts in half and add a scoop of protein powder.
