Good Morning Smoothie {with Wheat Germ}

I heart smoothies for summer. They’re a perfect way to sneak in some extra fruits and calcium. I added  little wheat germ to this smoothie and you couldn’t even tell. Next time I am going to add even more wheat germ. Wheat germ is an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals: vitamin E, most of the B vitamin group, folic acid, and a number of minerals such as iron, calcium, zinc. And, vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that is important for fighting cancer and heart problems. That’s not to mention all the great antioxidants and calcium you are getting from the berries and yogurt. So, you can feel really good about making this smoothie any time you want. I loved it and so did the little guy. I am even thinking of making it into Popsicles :) Do you have any “secret ingredients” you like to add to your smoothies to up the health quotient?

A few more of the house favorite smoothies are pumpkin pie smoothiepeanut butter banana smoothiebanana mango smoothie and last (but not least!) is berry banana oatmeal smoothie.
