Raspberry and banana make a great combination when creating a smoothie. I like to add a few extras so the smoothie has a more unique flavor. The secret to great smoothies is keeping it simple...sometimes, but every now and then I like add a few things that might surprise you. In this case adding pistachios or almonds, in a pinch will give this smoothie a nutty flavor (duh) that I think you will find enjoyable. Obviously the nutty flavor goes well with banana and is also nicely paired with the raspberries. A bit of honey sweetens it, but can be left out if you wish to drop a few calories. But I feel honey, in small doses is a nutritional supplement. Dr. Oz agrees with me.

You should also be aware that flaxseed is very good for you. Even though flaxseed is abundantly good for you and your body; it has 3 primary components that provide it with most of its healthy benefits. Omega-3 essential fatty acids, or "good fats" which have been clinically shown to be a heart healthy nutrient. Good heart, good life. Lignans, which are good antioxidants for scavenging free radicals. Flaxseed contains 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods. Yeah, that's a lot. Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types. More fiber, means feeling fuller and eating less.
