Purple Protein Smoothies

Sugar in the morning is the worst thing for people who have diabetes or hypoglycemia. This includes natural sugar that comes from fruit or fruit juices. I learned this from my doctor, who told me to save fruit for later in the afternoon or evening, and to only eat fruit with other food. So I like to make these Purple Smoothies to have with lunch or with an afternoon snack, such as a handful of almonds. This recipe makes three small smoothies, perfect for our family. If you want to use it as your breakfast, it would serve two.

1 c frozen strawberries
1 c frozen blueberries
1/2 c plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp protein powder
2 tbsp agave nectar
2 tsp chia seeds
2 tsp flaxseed meal
12 oz almond milk

Put everything in your blender or smoothie maker.

Blend until smooth. 

Serves 2-3.
