Blueberry Flax Superfood Smoothie

Is it weird that I went to bed last night oober excited to get to work this morning? 

I got to spend the entire weekend with one of my dearest friends, Davida from The Healthy Maven. She is me. I am her. We do the same thing for a living. We take pictures of food and put them on the internets. We also about 100 other things. It was really nice to spend good quality girl time with her because she can relate to who I am as a blogger, entrepreneur, and e-cookbook author (she released her book yesterday too!!), sister, daughter, and girlfriend. 

We have an interesting love story. It turns out that her man candy grew up less than a mile from my house in Minnesota…we’re talking the same neighborhood…like I could walk to his house. His parents still live in his childhood home, so when they go back for a weekend visit….I pretty much end up crashing their Minnesota party. Small world, eh?

But for real, I remember a year ago getting an email (or was it a tweet) from some blogger chick named Davida asking if I knew where Edina was. Uhhh why yes I do. We met for coffee and it was history after that.

Davida and Curt were back for the past 4 days. AKA best 4 days of my life.

Side note: this smoothie, though!

Davida and I skype almost every day. Why? Well- she’s the only one home during the day.

We call each other co-workers. Even though we run different blogs, we use each other as a support system and soundboard. She tells it how it is, so it’s nice having an honest opinion in my back pocket! 

This is only the second time we’ve seen each other in real life and the first time we barely knew each other. It was nice to have my real live bestie in real life. Don’t leave me. Blake and I took Davida and Curt fishing on Lake Harriet and last night we did a couples dinner date with D and C an C’s parentals (who I adore) at Cafe Lurcat in Loring Park

weekend

Last year I froze a crap ton of berries after receiving about 10,000 cartons from Driscoll’s at the Healthy Living Summit. I just wanted to make a note that THEY ARE STILL GOOD! No frost bite. Still perfect.

I wanted to use chia for this smoothie, but just finally finished off my 1 lb. bag last week…so flax it was! 

Flax in smoothies is the best ever. I love me some grit in my smoothie.

I thought I was going to need to add some honey, but these blueberries were on the sweeter side, so no need for extra sweets in this bad boy.

    Yes! My husband (of 10 years) and my best friend Susan (from Canada)!

    I’d add Chia to your smoothie…for the extra nutritional PUNCH! Love your blog.

    What an awesome weekend! I was so excited to find your blog since you are a fellow Minnesotan, and that ultimately led me to Davida’s, so THANK YOU!
    I do have a blend turned real friend – Laura from Laura Likes Design. Met at first because I won a giveaway, and then when HLS rolled around, we both ended up going and it was history after that! And I find it is so crazy how similar her and I are.

    Wow that picture of half ingredients half smoothie is awesome!! I love blueberry smoothies and this one looks delicious! I am glad you had a great weekend with your Bestie :)

    I like this recipe! I add flax seeds to almost everything: smoothies, quark, yogurt, muesli, omelette… I have a big tablespoon everyday. I will give this a try since I do have all the ingredients in the fridge (and freezer) YAY!
    Through my instagram account I’ve found two amazing girls that I now can call my two best friends! We haven’t met personally yet but are planning on this. (I’m German, the two are Dutch and Swedish) It’s great to be able to connect to like minded people from all over the world through instagram, blogs etc and the whole healthy living community!

    ….I am jealous. Just wait until August. I’ll blow your minds better than Eve and Gwen Stefani did.

    Only a real friend would post a photo of Davs with a cameltoe. This smoothie is seasonally racist. It’s winter here.

    I love your blog! I’ve been a frequent visitor here for the past few months looking for good and healthy recipes. Thanks for sharing us your passion with food.

    WHY can’t I be anywhere near real life bloggers :( :( :( but we will meet someday LeeLee. Especially if I come to Minneapolis later this summer which mom better still be doing. I hope you’re okay with going out for a meal with a 15 year old 😉 But this smoothie though! Beautiful.

    I love virtual friends!!! It is so fun getting to know people threw their blogs! I especially love when you finally meet in person! Thank god for that meet up you and Amanda put together last winter! I’m so happy we all live relatively close to each other! Come back from vacay so we can hang out!!!! You owe me balls :)

    Your blueberry recipe is great! It makes me want to try it and have one for myself. You know, I plan to include this thing in my list of detox diet recipes. I hope you would share more of your smoothie ideas so that I can apply it on my weight loss and detox diet.

    I love the smoothie recipes but they don’t have calories. Could you consider adding this to your blog? It would be really helpful because I found you through Myfitnesspal. Thanks!

    I use a mixture of flax, psyllium and chia to make an overnight blueberry, yogurt, organic coconut meal… Nice to see I’m not alone!!

  12. Tonya says

    Oh yummy!!!! Made it this morning and delicious! Husband didn’t like it, but he is not a blueberry fan like me.
