Apple Cranberry Flax Smoothie

This recipe combines healthy fats from the flax meal.  Flax meal is high in fiber, and 73% of the fat is polyunsaturated.   I have added a base of Fairlife nonfat milk.  The fruit adds enough sweetness to absolve the need for sugar, but you may need to add a little honey.   This simple smoothie has enough fiber and protein to keep you full all morning long.
