Although this blueberry banana smoothie would be delicious and healthy without adding the flax seed, it wouldn’t as full of fiber as it could be. Another healthful benefit from the flax seed is the boost of omega 3 it provides. Add to the a kick of protein and you have a very satisfying and healthy smoothie. Although it serves 2, feel free to drink the whole thing and make this a full-blown breakfast smoothie.
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 banana
- 6 ounces plain nonfat plain yogurt
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
