Frozen strawberries

This is a favorite of mine because it’s as satisfying and delicious as a milk shake, and filled to the rim with ingredients that are good for you.  Considering all of the nutrients you’ll be consuming, this really is a blast  in a glass.   “Cheers!” to your health.
Prep time: 5 minutes Makes about 2, 8-ounce glasses

1 scoop plain or vanilla-flavored whey protein powder
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
