My Morning Fruit and Protein Shake

I don't seem to eat enough fruit each day so I have started making a shake in the morning before leaving for work that is filled with a combination of protein, fruit and calcium. I vary with the fruit and sometimes I just throw it all in for a great flavor.

Ingredients in this order:

12 oz Coconut Milk ( sometimes I mix organic non fat or almond milk with it)
4-5 pieces of each frozen fruit (blueberries, strawberries, peaches, mangos or any other type you like)
1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil
1 scoop of whey protein mix vanilla flavor
1 multi vitamin
1 vitamin D pill
1 or 1/2 bananna (optional)

Then I mix it in the blender for about 3-4 minutes.  The longer I blend it the creamier it becomes and the frozen berries makes it extra cold.  I try to start my day off with this and I can actually feel the extra energy I have throughout the day.  You can modify it to fit your taste.  Add wheatgrass or use soy milk.  My preference is Coconut milk.  It actually has more calcium than milk in most cases.  If I want more of a coconut flavor I throw in a handful of shredded coconut before blending.
