Strawberry Fields Smoothie
1 cup unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, or soy milk
1 cup sliced fresh or frozen banana, peeled (about 1 medium banana)
1 cup sliced fresh or frozen strawberries
1 cup fresh mixed greens (spinach, kale leaves, chard, etc.)
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal, optional
Place all ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth.
Yield: 2 servings (serving size: about 8 ounces or 1 cup)
- Substitute water in place of non-dairy milk (or half of it).
- Make sure either the banana or strawberries are frozen so your smoothie is chilled.
- To freeze bananas, remove peels before placing in freezer. Put in a plastic zip-top bag until completely frozen.
- Flaxseed meal is a powder made from ground flaxseeds. It is high in fiber and a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids.
