Pink Berry Strawberry Smoothie

Ok, I feel like a pro at smoothies. I have made them for years and authored at least 20-30 recipes.  I drink them several days a week, and I feel better if I have one. I think the pink and purple or citrus smoothies are my favorites, but I can tolerate some of the green ones.  This recipe combines healthy fats from chia seeds and flax meal.  Flax meal is high in fiber, and 73% of the fat is polyunsaturated.  Chia seeds are equally impressive a decent source of protein and fiber.   I have added a base of Fairlife nonfat milk for protein and fluid.  The berries add enough sweetness to absolve the need for sugar.   This simple smoothie has enough fiber and protein to keep you full all morning long.
