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
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 Skandia Mills)
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!)
