I've never tried flax seeds before but there are a myriad of health benefits from these little babies....including fighting cholesteral, diabetes, cancer, constipation, inflammation, menapausal symptoms, heart disease and atypical depression!! I added a tablespoon to this smoothie. I have continued to have more energy, not have those 3pm crashes and still have not had to take an allergy pill for almost 2 weeks and have had a lot less congestion.
I also added about 3 tbsp almond butter which I haven't made before. Super easy!!!
1 cup almonds, 2 tbsp olive oil and pulse to desired consistency in the food processor!
8oz plain yogurt
2 spears pineapple
1/3 cup mango pieces...just now realized I left the frozen strawberries in the microwave!!!! oops!
1/2 cup spinach leaves
1/4 cup almond butter
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tbsp flaxseed.
I did this in the food processor also because its pretty thick and my blender couldn't take it. Its more of a meal than a shake anyway!!! If you want to thin it out, add more almond milk, a couple ice cubes or some pure water. Yummy!
