Blackberry Banana Flax Seed Smoothie

DSC_00011-290x290Instead of buying store-bought smoothies try this recipe next time.  I kick up the nutritional content by adding ground flax seeds to a blackberry banana smoothie. You can add whatever fruit you have on hand. I usually have an assortment of fruit in the freezer chopped up in individual bags. If you don’t have fresh frozen fruit you can always add a few ice cubes in the blender.  I let the kids decide which fruit they want and blend it all together and make healthy smoothies.

Smoothies are a great way to add fruit into your kids diets.  You can easily help fill their fruit requirements by adding a smoothie to their day.  I like making my own smoothies because I know exactly what is going in them and there not loaded with sugar and mystery ingredients.

Please share what smoothies you like making in your family! Enjoy!

1 cup of yogurt
1/2 cup of blackberries, frozen
1/2 banana, frozen
1 tablespoon of ground flax-seed

1. In a blender add all ingredients and blend until well combined.


Bernice first started Yummy Tummy Cooking when her son was 2 years old. After being a little disappointed and down right scared at times (meat sticks in a jar…need I say more) with the food selection at the supermarket, she started making her children’s meals at home. Most weekends you can find her in the kitchen, supermarket or local farmers markets. Bernice’s philosophy to what she feeds her family is simple – try to buy local and organic. She has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry; if she has to refer to her degree to decipher the ingredients, she doesn’t buy it. If she can’t read it, they don’t eat it….that simple!
