Get the day started right with a peanut butter, banana, and flax smoothie. Not only will it taste like a treat but you'll get a good dose of potassium, protein, and fiber to boot. If the smoothies seem too thick, just add another tablespoon or two of milk.

  • 1/2 cup vanilla fat-free yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons ground golden flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ripe banana, sliced
