About this Recipe
Also great as a post-workout snack, you can vary the nuts, seeds and berries, or even add a raw egg.
Step by Step Instructions
- 30g almonds
- 2 tbsp flax seeds (linseeds)
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 120ml almond or rice milk (or equivalent)
- 50g frozen berries e.g. raspberries or mixed berries
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tbsp flax seed oil
- 1 handful of baby spinach
Place the almonds, linseeds and sunflower seeds in a food processor and process at full speed until they are well ground.
Add the remaining ingredients and blend for a minute, until smooth.
– Adjust the amount of milk to achieve the consistency you require. For a thicker consistency, you could use frozen banana chunks.
– Substitute the frozen fruit for any seasonal fruit you like and add ice cubes to make it colder.
– Add kale instead of spinach and include chia seeds for additional protein and fibre.
Flax seeds are benefical for digestive, hormone, immune and cardiovascular health and smoothies are a simple way to incorporate a decent portion of them into your daily diet. The omega 3 fats in flax seeds oxidise easily, so it is best to freshly grind the seeds as you need them, rather than to buy a pre-ground seed mix.
