This delicious and refreshing smoothie is made with strawberries and frozen pineapple. It's not only tasty, but also good for you too!
Place pineapple and water into your blender.
Add strawberries and flax seed.
Blend until ingredients are combined.
Serve immediately. Place any extra smoothie in the refrigerator for up to two days.
Add the frozen fruit and water into the blender first. By doing this, the fruit will chop up easier in the blender.
The smoothie tastes best served right away.
If you have any extra berries and or pineapple, make the smoothie look festive by slicing them down the middle just about halfway and place them on the rim of the glass.
Refrigerate any leftover smoothie for up to two days.
No flax seed? For another great source of protein, you can add some oats or chia seeds in place of the flax seed.
How much does this serve? I typically make this as a healthy afternoon snack for my family of four and we each get 8 oz. servings. If you have extra, you can just place it in the refrigerator for another day (it should be used within two days).
Will kids like this smoothie? Kids love smoothies! It is such a great way to add nutritional foods to their diet. Both of our kids love smoothies.
Want to make the smoothie into popsicles? Just pour the mix into your popsicle mold and let them sit in the freezer 4-6 hours. This is another way to get nutrients into your kids. And kids love popsicles so this will be a win!
