Raspberry and flaxseed smoothie

A significant element for a balanced diet are juices and healthy drinks. You may have already noticed that on A Shiny Day we love delicious smoothies. A healthy smoothie with the right ingredients can be refreshing, stimulating with nutrients and can also lift our spirits with its beautiful color. This week I tried an out-of-this-world raspberry and flaxseed smoothie.

Flaxseed is essential for those who follow a vegan diet while raspberries help detoxify the body.

Ingredients for a glass :
  • 3 organic strawberries
  • 1 tbsp frozen raspberries
  • 3/4 of a glass of oat milk
  • 1 seedless royal date
  • 1/4 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. flaxseed
Instructions :

Add all the ingredients in a blender and mix well.

Serve in a glass and enjoy with a metal or reusable straw.

Tips :
  • Flaxseed should be whole and not crashed. It is good to know that already crashed flaxseed sold in bags has oxidized.
  • Frozen raspberries make our juice more refreshing and we don’t need to worry about their nutritional value.
  • Of course if we want to make our own milk from oats or nuts.

Nutritional value :
  • Raspberries have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Flaxseed is rich in omega-3 fats, and can be strengthening to our digestive system.
  • Cinnamon in addition to its wonderful aroma works as an antioxidant for the body.
  • Finally, royal dates, in addition to being a wonderful natural sweetener for all our recipes, contain magnesium and vitamin B, while enhancing the good function of the intestine, thanks to their healthy sugars.

So what do you think? Will you try it?

See you soon,
