DIRECTIONS: Blend flax seeds( dark one and water in blender for 2-3 minutes to create what will resemble milk. It will look like a creamy mucilage consisitency. It sounds gross but, its wonderful. Don't blend to long it will be to frothy and slimy. I used @ 1.4 - 1.5 cup flax seeds and half blender filled with filtered water. Once blended, warm on stove.
If it looks watery add more flax seeds, if it's to thick add more water or thin it out with
soy milk, hemp, almond, etc.
In a mug add some cinnamon and sweetener , add warmed flax milk, sprinkle additional cinnamon and soy milk whip cream(optional).
Will make a warm, creamy, super healthy drink that some say taste like a latte.
This is great to have with dinner or before bed for the children. It is also very filling and comforting. Great for replacing junky sweet foods. It is also great for filling up your belly if you are trying to cut calories.
We like to drink warm drinks especially in the winter months. Usually, we will warm soy milk with honey/agave and cinnamon. See my holistic health page for additional health benefits.
Postpartum recovery from my miscarraige, I can begin to feel my tastebuds again. Tests revealed my iron was low and my protein. For breakfast, I have two scrambled eggs and turkey bacon. My kids also love this. In addition, i make smoothies every morning. I do not buy juice unless its, seasonal like apple cider. I buy frozen fruit, add a few goodies and make our own delicious nutrient packed smoothies. During the rest of the day we sip on water, herbal, tea, and cocoa because it's late fall here.
Frozen fruit is a great way to get your daily servings plus nutrients. It is more affordable and during the winter and a better option. I do not knock myself out with organic vs non when it comes to frozen. I buy what i can afford. Frozen is a healthier longer lasting option to canned and fresh, if you cannot get it. Kids love smoothies, and you can always sneak a bunch of goodies in there. If you do not have green powder sneak some fresh spinach in there.
Frozen Fruit ( wild blueberries, strawberries, raspberry, mango, really any combo)
water or milk (soy, almond, hemp, etc)
local honey ( great for allergies)
spirulina ( any green powder mix is great)
oats ( B vitamins)
Protein powder (optional, i.e. pea protein)
