Blueberry Flax Smoothie
3/4 cup frozen blueberries
1 frozen banana
1 Tbsp flax seed meal
1 Tbsp natural nut butter (the kind without hydrogenated oils, preservatives, or sugar, etc.)
1 cup water
Blend. If the blender doesn’t cooperate, add more water by the Tbsp.
If you don’t have a banana frozen, you can add a fresh banana and a few ice cubes to compensate…but I highly recommend using the frozen variety. For frozen banana novices: when very ripe, peel and freeze. Be sure to peel it. Removing the skin from a frozen banana is an unnecessary and annoying chore that gives your fingers frostbite.
Benefits of the blueberry include:
High levels of Lutein, Resveratrol, Vitamin K, Vitamin, C, Manganese, Fiber, and Zeaxanthin.
Also, they taste really good.
