Scale

Ingredients

For the Strawberry Flaxseed Smoothie:

  • 1.5 cups liquid (I like vanilla almond milk)
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseeds
  • optional sweetener of choice (1 TB maple syrup is easy!)
  • 1.5 cups whole strawberries
  • optional: half a frozen banana

For the Berry Flaxseed Smoothie:

  • 1.5 cups liquid (I used coconut milk!)
  • 2 tablespoons flax (whole or ground)
  • optional sweetener of choice (1 TB maple syrup is easy!)
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1.5 cups frozen blueberries (for low carb use 1/2 cup berries + 1 avocado)

For the Flaxseed Smoothie With Spinach:

  • 1 cup liquid
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed
  • 1 peeled lemon, whole (optional, add 1/4 liquid if omitting)
  • 1/4 cup cashew pieces (optional)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries

Instructions

  1. As detailed in the post, let’s pack our blender cups the best way for smooth blending: Add the liquid to your blender first, followed by the flaxseeds and mix ins(sweetener, nut butter, yogurt).
  2. Next, add greens (if using) then top with the frozen fruit.
  3. Blend for 1-2 minutes, until very smooth. If you notice anything sticking to the sides of your blender, stop and scrape with a spatula.
  4. Keto/ Low Carb option: Use 1/2 cup frozen fruit + 1 avocado in the berry/strawberry flax smoothies.

Notes

** You can add 1/2 cup spinach to any of these smoothies without significantly changing the taste- although the color will change.

** If the contents in your blender are not smoothly flowing, try adding a bit more liquid.
