I usually put my smoothies into a jar like the ones above to bring with me to work when I am short on time.

BERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE
1 large banana, peeled, sliced and frozen
3/4 cups frozen or fresh strawberries, raspberries or blueberries
3/4 cups low‐ or non‐fat vanilla frozen yogurt
1 12ounces can or bottle of regular or diet ginger ale, chilled

Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend at highest speed until smooth. Note: if you use fresh berries, try to use a frozen banana, and if you use a fresh banana, go for frozen berries. Otherwise your drink will be too thin. Both fruits being frozen will give you a satisfyingly thick drink.

FLAXSEED SMOOTHIE
1 medium banana or fruit of choice
1/4 cups yogurt or tofu
1 to 2 tablespoons concentrated fruit juice
1/4 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cups soy milk
1 tablespoon flaxseed oil
1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
Dash cinnamon or mace

Blend all together until creamy smooth.

STRAWBERRY BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE
1/2 cups frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 frozen banana (peel before freezing)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cups frozen vanilla or strawberry yogurt

Whirl all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately.
