Dairy Free - Soy Free Fruit Smoothie

First of all, I apologize for the lack of posts.
Part of it has been because of the lack of mental energy to do anything extra.
Part of it has been because of my obsessive habit of "All-Or-Nothing": 
If I don't have have time to do something REALLY WELL, I don't want to do it at all! 

An Indian summer is upon us, I am taking advantage of the warm days to enjoy smoothies.
My ingredient measurements are a little vague...I rarely measure anything but go by "lumps" or "spoons".
I'll do my best to put that into tablespoons and cups for you.
This recipe makes a frozen treat for two.

Dairy/Soy Free Fruit Smoothie

3-4 Tbsp.     coconut milk (more if you want it richer and creamier)
1                  farm-fresh raw egg, preferably organic (if you only have access to store bought 
                    eggs do not use raw egg because of increased risk of salmonella)  
1                  ripe banana
1 tsp            psyllium husks (optional)
1 tsp            flax seed (use more if you like to)
2 tsp            flax seed oil (optional)
dose for 2 people of vitamin D3 drops (optional)
2 cups         frozen fruit - any variety or mix
1                 thin slice of lemon, including peel if organic (this gives a little sparkle of flavor)
1 cup -/+    water as needed to help smoothie turn over in blender 

-Put all ingredients into blender. 
-Blend until smooth and creamy, adding water as needed and tamping down to help it move.
-Divide into two large glasses and enjoy along with good conversation.

Smoothies are great, aren't they? You can slip in a little of oh-so-many good things. Coconut milk is a delicious addition. This recipe looks yummy!
