  • Prep 5 mins
  • Cook 0 mins

A powerful combination of super-nutritious (and super-yummy) berries and flaxseeds, full of inflammation-fighting omega-3 fats, this smoothie makes a great breakfast or afternoon snack.

Add a scoop of whey powder, available in most large grocery stores and natural food stores, for a protein boost.

Ingredients

1 cup organic plain yogurt
1 cup water
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Combine the yogurt, water, and orange juice in a blender and process for a few seconds. Add the strawberries and process until well blended, then add the blueberries, raspberries, flaxseeds, and honey or maple syrup and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
