Fruit and Flaxseed Smoothie

During the summer we really like smoothies at our home.  I know it is not summer now and no one is probably thinking about making a smoothie but I had to post.  This is a frugal alternative to Jamba Juice.

1 1/2 c frozen fruit (any combination)
1/2 c milk  product (any type)
1/2 c yogurt product (any type of plain, unsweetened)
1 T ground flax seed

Blend in blender until smooth.

Notes:  Flax seed goes rancid very quickly.  I only grind up what I need when I need it.  I recommend using a small food processor or a coffee grinder specifically designated for nuts, spices, etc. Not one used for coffee as well.
