Peanut Butter, Banana, and Flax Smoothies

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.
