Mocha Berry Smoothie

Yes, you read that right, and yes, it's homemade! Simple, delicious and nutritious. If it gave you an orgasm it would be perfect, but alas, I leave that up to your own devices.

I make mine using my hand-held blender stick thing, but a blender or Magic Bullet both work wonders as well.

Mocha Berry Smoothie
serves 1

4oz cranberry juice*
1 6oz container vanilla Greek yogurt (of course I use Kroger brand)
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
2 tbsp flaxseed
1 heaping tbsp Nesquik
2oz water

Place ingredients in blender. If you're using a handheld device like mine, I suggest putting it in that exact order, starting with the juice and ending with the water. Blend it up, stick a straw in that bad boy and go to town!

*If you prefer, omit the juice and water and use 6oz skim milk, 4oz at the bottom and 2oz at the top (calorie count with milk is the same but you get an additional 4g protein)
