We’ve been eating a lot of smoothies around our house lately! Whether it’s due to a weird craving or the fact that I bought several 32 oz containers of plain yogurt on clearance, I don’t know. 


Either way, a smoothie can be a very healthy snack or lunch. We found a fun recipe at Food Network and of course I had to tweak it and add to it one of my favorite things to eat–flax!

Frozen Fruit Smoothie with Flax
Serves 4 

2 bananas, peeled and broken into chunks
4 cups frozen fruit (we used a mixture of strawberries and peaches)
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 cup orange juice
2 or 3 tbsp. honey to taste
2 or 3 tbsp. ground flax (we buy Manitoba Flax)

Put all ingredients in blender or food processor and process until smooth. I actually have to do this in two batches in my Cuisinart or it spills over the top.

Serve in decorative glasses or with fun straws (that’s how the kids like to eat it!)

  1. Thank you Jenn – I have all the ingredients on hand so we are trying this one today. Thank you for sharing in the link up :)

  2. This smoothie looks yummy. I put flax in my smoothies most of the time. Flax seems to help with dry skin.
