Yum Alert: Almond Banana Flaxseed Smoothie

Written by emilyc

In my life, flaxseeds are like kale: if I can in any way include it in what I’m eating, I will. It should be that way in your life, too, because of the immense health benefits to be had. Contrary to popular belief, they are delicious – even more delicious when paired with a little honey and cinnamon. Recipe and image via Ink Lemonade.


2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup almond butter*
2 frozen ripe bananas [I break each banana into pieces, wrap in freezer-safe foil, and freeze overnight] 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey or desired sweetness

Blend and enjoy.
