Strawberry Flax Smoothie.
Just two tablespoons of flax seeds, weighing in at 95 calories, contains over 140% of the daily value of omega 3 fatty acids. These fatty acids can protect against diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, and also decrease inflammation. Because the nutrients in flax seeds are better absorbed when ground ~ and a lot more palatable! ~ I’ve used the ground seeds in this recipe.
2 bananas, frozen and sliced
1 cup frozen strawberries
4 tablespoons flax seeds, ground
1 cup almond milk
a few raw almonds, chopped
In a blender, combine all ingredients and puree until very smooth.
Garnish with a few chopped almonds, if desired.
