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
