Healthy Low-Cal Fruit Smoothie

Early mornings under the pergola, after a hard workout or as a quick on-the-go substitute meal; my family and I frequently drink variations of this smoothie recipe. Sometimes I leave off the flax seed oil or the mango (not my favorite). I use a “Ninja” blender; my daughter likes her “Bullet.” Any blender, as long as the frozen ingredients are finely crushed will work. Anyway, not a pretty colored smoothie, LOL, but tasty and refreshing. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
