    I love the Vanilla. I put 1 cup water, 3 scoops Vanilla Nutrimeal, 1/2 banana, 5-7 chunks pinaple (I have the banana & pineapple chuncks in my freezer in small snack bags for convenience and the frozen fruit makes it more of a frozen drink). Then I add 1 scoop Fibergy, 1 Tbsp Hemp Hearts, 1 Tbsp ground flax seed and blend.
