We offer this fruity beverage to guests to add a festive touch to holiday gatherings. It pours up frothy, then separates into a dark pink base with a light foamy top. A slightly tart drink, it's wonderful with home-baked cookies.
Please romance that recipe is also delicious without the flaxseed. IN an effort to promote flax, which we grow on our farm, my husband and I came up with this recipe while we were driving to the annual Pride of Dakota Show to sell our flax products. We made our first Strawberry Flax Smoothie at the show and it was a hit!
The smoothie can be prepared as well without the flax.
Four ingredients and ice cubes come together to create this flavorful fruity treat from Sarah Hulslander of Arlington, Texas. It would be nice for an afternoon pick-me-up, but, Sarah adds, “It can also be an instant breakfast on busy mornings. This drink goes really well with muffins.”
Start out your mornings with one of these refreshing smoothies using low fat dairy products and blueberries. To complete the meal, serve these with whole grain muffins, bagels or toast. Nella Parker of Hersey, Michigan also likes to serve these smoothies at dinner.
Sweet and refreshing, this pretty pink slush stores well in the freezer, so it's great to have on hand for summer guests. Just thaw and add ginger ale or lemon-lime soda. Aahhh! —Danielle Brandt, Ruthton, Minnesota
“This smoothie is fantastic and is packed with protein as well as the berries,” writes Allison Tunaley of Lookout, California. “No one knows it's even tofu until we tell them, but even then, they can't believe it.”
