Instruction:. Fruit and berry smoothie with flax seeds.
First, chop the flax seeds. Pour 2-3 teaspoons of seeds into a coffee grinder and grind for 5-7 seconds . In reserve, it is not necessary to grind flax seeds, since they quickly oxidize in the open air and lose their useful properties. And whole seeds in an airtight container can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 years.
You can prepare smoothies with flax seeds using either a stationary or submerged blender. I’ll use the submersible this time. So, pour into a glass that comes with a blender, cold boiled water and add a little of any berries to taste and availability. In winter, you can use frozen berries, and in season – fresh. I have fresh raspberries and blackcurrants. If you use frozen berries directly from the freezer, it is better to heat the water a little so that the smoothie does not turn out cold.
Then add the crushed flax seeds. Then put two bananas. Peel them and cut them into small slices. Take ripe bananas to make the smoothie sweet enough.
Chop all the ingredients with a blender until smooth.
One аpple is washed, remove the core with seeds and cut into small pieces (the thin skin can not be cleaned). But if you do not like small particles of skin in the finished drink, then it is better to pre-clean the аpple.
To prepare this fruit and berry smoothie, it is better to take sweet or sour-sweet apples. Prepared apples are also sent to the glass of a blender. You can also put a little natural honey, but this is optional, since the banana will add enough sweet notes to the finished drink. Adjust the sweetness to your taste.
And once again we punch everything with a blender until a uniform smooth consistency, there should be no pieces of fruit.
Fruit and berry smoothie with flax seeds turned out to be quite thick, delicious, with a delicate creamy consistency and a light berry sourness. Immediately pour it into glasses and serve, since this drink is not stored, but is drunk immediately after cooking. Bon Appetit!
