Strawberry Banana Smoothie

I've been on a bit of a health kick lately. I've been trying to get back in shape and get my nutrition in check. One of the my main problems is I don't get enough fruits and vegetables. I've tried several smoothie recipes lately. Some good and some that tasted like grass! I finally decided to start making them to my liking. I figured if I want to get healthy, I need to enjoy the ingredients I use! I started out by making one with my two favorites: strawberries and bananas, and have slowly come up with other variations. This smoothie works great for a pre-workout meal, snack or breakfast on the go. Here is my recipe for my favorite smoothie:

Strawberry Banana Smoothie


1 ripe banana
5-6 frozen or fresh strawberries
3/4 cup cold milk
2 teaspoons sugar 
1 tablespoon flaxseed
5-6 ice cubes

Throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. About two minutes. If the smoothie is too thick just add a little more milk, a tablespoon at a time until smooth consistency. Pour into a glass, add a straw and enjoy! 
Banana-Berry Version: Make as above but add blackberries and blueberries for an added berry punch!
