Welcome to one of my new absolute favorite healthy smoothies! This Banana Almond Flax Smoothie is like dessert for breakfast and I just can’t get enough of it! Once you try this smoothie you’re going to have to keep an extra stock of frozen bananas on hand at all times, it’s definitely a smoothie you’ll want to make regularly. And the good news is that it’s packed with good for you ingredients. It’s made with almond butter, bananas, ground flax seeds, unsweetened almond milk, plain Greek yogurt, honey and just a few drops of almond extract which takes this smoothie for ordinary to extraordinary! I love when I can find something healthy like this that my whole family loves, kids included. I also love that it’s made with ingredients I always have on hand. One of the most convenient and delicious smoothies – what’s not to love here?

  • Heidi: Hi,
    I use ground flaxseed but they get stuck all around the inside of my blender. Do you know how to prevent that from happening?? (I’m new to making smoothies… Well cooking too lol)
    Thx :) January 13, 2016 at 8:57pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Not sure why that would be happening but since it’s already ground you could just try stirring it in after blending. January 13, 2016 at 9:39pm Reply
