Superfood Flax Seed Smoothie

When in doubt, make a smoothie! This blueberry flax superfood smoothie is one of the most nutrient-packed smoothies, ever. We love this smoothie because it is made with simple ingredients, yet is creamy and delicious.

Ingredients in the blender.

What You Need

We packed this smoothie with healthy ingredients that are accessible to everyone! Let’s break down all of the ingredients and why they are healthy!

  • Blueberries- You can find blueberries in most of the frozen sections at the grocery store! They are packed with fiber, potassium, and vitamin C!
  • Ground Flaxseed– Say hello to the nutrient-packed ground flaxseed! Flaxseed is known for being super high in fiber and omega 3 fatty acids!
  • Spinach- You don’t have to be forced by your mom to eat your spinach! When you blend spinach into a smoothie you can’t even taste it! Spinach is packed with protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals. WOWWY.
  • Greek yogurt- Greek yogurt is the key to making smoothies creamy! Greek yogurt is also loaded with protein!
  • Almond Milk- When it comes to milk alternatives, we are big fans of almond milk! Almond milk just happens to be high in protein and low in calories, too!

Flaxseed Smoothie 101

Are flaxseed smoothies healthy?

Yes, superfood smoothies are healthy! They get some bad flack for being calorie-dense. But superfood smoothies are packed with healthy calories that are so good for your body!

Just be sure not to have a smoothie for every meal! It’s all about balance!

What are the best smoothie toppings?

Toppings are one of the best parts of a smoothie. You can choose what direction to go! Here are a list of some of our favorites!

How much flax seeds in smoothie?

Per 1 serving, we recommend 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed.

….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.

That’s so awesome that you and Davida are friends! I enjoy reading both of your blogs!

This blueberry smoothie looks so refreshing! I like you how you didn’t have to use too many ingredients!

Love this! I have a very similar smoothie recipe going up tomorrow. We’re on the same wavelength.

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!

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 🙂

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.

It is so oddly wonderful! I’m up in good ol’ Duluth, but always willing to make a trek to the cities!

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.
