This smoothie is as nutritious as it is tasty and refreshing. The combination of flax seeds, berries and bananas means it’s packed with fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and antioxidants and the orange juice gives a nice sweet/sharp taste. Make sure you use orange juice that is NOT made from concentrate though or, better still, squeeze your own. Not so keen on soya milk? No worries – use regular skim milk instead.
- 2 tablespoons whole flax seeds
- ½ cup orange juice
- ½ cup unsweetened soya milk
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1 small banana
Place all the ingredients in your blender pitcher and blend on low and then high for 30-seconds. Add ice to make the mixture thicker. Either serve immediately or store in a thermos to drink later. Why would you spend $484 on a top blender? my answer here, and my recommendations of the best blenders for smoothies under $200.

I have been making smoothies. You mentioned just drinking smoothies how many are we talking about a day?
Thanks for your comment. Not Just drinking smoothies, but smoothies to add vegetables and fruit to your diet. I usually start with a smoothie on the morning for breakfast. Sometimes a green smoothie on the afternoon as a snack, as some days I don’t eat enough veggies. Have a nice day
