A Green Smoothie for a New Year

Well it's Day 3 of 2012.  More specifically it's Day 3 of January in YYC, and it's going to be 8 degrees today, 14 degrees tomorrow.  For someone that isn't a fan of the cold this makes me happy.  So happy in fact I think I'll celebrate with a smoothie.  Temperatures like these are basically 'spring like' anyway. 
This breakfast is the perfect fresh start from all the holiday indulgences that occurred over the past couple weeks.  A powerhouse full of vitamin C, calcium, and fiber.   Nutritious & delicious!

Cran-Apple Green Smoothie

1/2 cup frozen cranberries
1 gala apple, cored
2 cups spinach
1 Tbsp Flax
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt

Put all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor except for ice.  Starting with flax and spinach.  Top with fruit, milk and yogurt.  Blend for 1 minute.  Add ice and blend further.
