A healthy breakfast smoothie can fuel you for your day and help fill you up. The raspberry and blueberry flavors mixed with the nutty flavor of flax create a nutritious, fiber-rich breakfast option. According to Women's Fitness, flaxseed contains immune-enhancing omega fatty acids as well as cancer-fighting lignans. Combine this smoothie with oatmeal or cereal in the morning to curb hunger and boost energy. A berry and flaxseed smoothie also works as a healthy alternative to weight-loss shakes since flaxseed expands when ingested, making you feel fuller.
Place the frozen berries into a blender filled with a small handful of ice. In some smoothies, the fruits are fresh and lead to a more juice-like consistency. Increasing the quantity of ice adds a thickness to the smoothie. Since the berries are frozen in this recipe, you will not need as much ice.
Add ¼ cup of whey powder to the blender.
Place 2 tbsp. of ground flaxseed into the blender as well.
Follow the flaxseed with 2 tsp. of lemon juice.The tart flavor of the lemon will bring out the natural sweetness of the berries.
Add ¼ cup of unsweetened cranberry juice to the blender.
Top the mixture in the blender with honey.
