Fruit & Flaxseed Smoothie

Feeling rushed in the morning? Well, no, this isn’t a breakfast pastry like the other recipes in this section, but it’s just as quick to grab–really. Surely you’ve got five minutes to mix up this delicious, healthful eye-opener.

Total Time: 5
Yield: 3 cups


  • 2 tablespoons flaxseeds (or 1/4 cup ground)
  • 1 cup whole frozen strawberries (about 10)
  • 6 whole dried apricots, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 medium-size banana
  • 1-1/2 cups low-fat vanilla soymilk, chilled


Place whole flaxseeds in a clean spice or coffee grinder and whir until pulverized.
Place fruits and soymilk in a blender.
Add powdered flaxseeds, cover, and process until mixture is smooth, about 30 seconds.
Pour into glasses and serve.
