Blueberry Banana Flaxseed Smoothie

The arrival of spring brings warmer weather, more sunshine and blueberry season! Blueberries are one of America’s super foods because they are low in calories but contain vitamins C and E, help regulate the digestive system and activate fat-burning genes along with many other health benefits.

With temperatures reaching the 80’s this past weekend, a refreshing blueberry, banana, honey smoothie with flax seed was the ideal drink.  And, based on its review from my child critics, this could be a welcomed addition to our breakfast rotation.

Like any smoothie, there’s no skills required for its production.  Just dump all of the ingredients together and push blend.  I used 1 cup of frozen blueberries and one banana but, feel free to increase the amount of fruit for added taste. I also added in a scoopful of flax seed because, why not? Flax seed has many healthy benefits, most notably the boost of omega 3.  But, if you have chia seeds laying around or wheat germ, or whatever, dump some in.  You should feel free to add any additional ingredients to your blender and just taste test the drink you go.

That’s the beauty about smoothies, you’re the mad scientist with the ability to tweak the potion.

This smoothie is just as good as an après afternoon workout drink as it is served for breakfast in the morning.  Take your pick, either way you will enjoy.
