Equipment

  • High powered or regular blender
  • Measuring cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Crushed ice *omit if using a regular blender and frozen strawberries
  • 1 Ripe banana
  • 1 cup Strawberries, fresh or frozen I typically use frozen
  • 1 cup Plant based milk I use original soy milk
  • 1 tbsp Flax Seeds
  • 1 cup You Favorite Greens *Optional

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to you blender, secure the lid, and blend on high for 90 seconds or until smooth
  • Stop to scrape down the sides or tamp ingredients down into the blades as needed
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

  • I use regular soy milk in our smoothies.  If your plant based milk of choice is unsweetened, add 1-2 pitted dates for sweetness, if desired.   
  • Flax seeds will thicken your smoothie the longer they sit.  Eventually they become "gel like", just like Flax Eggs.  If you're drinking your smoothie right away, no need to worry.  You won't even notice they're in there.  But, if you let the smoothie sit or put it in the fridge for later, you'll notice a change in texture.  Typically, smoothies are consumed immediately so I always add the flax.  If I'm planning to keep some for later, I tend to skip the flax and you may want to do the same.
