A simple yet yummy smoothie to keep you going for a few hours in the morning. This smoothie has a good balance of fruit, fats and fibre and the ingredients are easy to get hold of, most of which you’ll probably already have in your kitchen making it a great speedy breakfast.
If you make this for later in the day be aware that it will thicken over time as the flaxseed absorbs some of the moisture, this is perfectly fine, I’m just letting y’all know incase you’re wondering why the consistency suddenly changed!
I love using flaxseed in my breakfast, it goes so well with some yogurt, berries and nut butter and also great for bulking out smoothies plus you get a good omega 3 fat hit from it, which is a type of beneficial anti-inflammatory fat that most of us tend not to get enough of, but if you don’t have this then just sub it with any seeds you have in your cupboards.
