Strawberry Banana Apple Smoothie

What you need: 

1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup juice
1 apple, cored and chopped
1/2 frozen banana, peeled and chopped
1/2 fresh banana, peeled and chopped
2-3 cups frozen strawberries, chopped
cinnamon, to taste

What you do: 

Add the ingredients into a blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth, about 1 or 2 minutes.
**TIPS** Vanilla and plain soy milk work well. Most any kind of juice is good. Use a sweeter apple, such as gala. And you can leave the peel on to get all the apples nutrients. If your blender does not handle this well, then simply peel the apple. Its easiest to peel and chop the banana first, put it in a bag, and freeze it overnight for a smoothie the next day. The amount of strawberries is approximate. I just fill my blender to the top. I usually put 4 or 5 shakes of cinnamon, but use as much as you want.
**NUTRITION** This smoothie is very creamy and sweet, but very healthy. Silk brand soy milk will cost you 100 calories, the juice about 60, the apple 50, the banana 100, the strawberries 150. All the fat comes from the soy milk, coming in at 3.5 grams.
Total calories: 460 Total fat: 3.5 grams
**SERVINGS** This will serve up to 3 people comfortably, but I drink one myself every morning for breakfast.
