HEALTHY BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE

This recipe is okay for diabetics and those watching their insulin levels because of its good protein to carbohydrate ratio.

2 tbsp walnuts
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
1/2 cup blueberries
dash of ground cinnamon

Pour milk into a blender container; add the yogurt, walnuts, flaxseed meal, and blueberries.  Sprinkle ground cinnamon over top.  Blend for 15 to 20 seconds until smooth.

Garnish with fresh berries, if desired.

*May substitute equal amount of low-fat calcium enriched soy milk.
