I drink a smoothie containing flax oil three days per week (M-W-F) for the 8 grams of omega-3. The recommendation from the US government agencies is usually 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of flax oil per day to supply omega-3 fatty acids for a 2000 kcal diet, although my naturopath recommends 1 T per day.


  1. Add all ingredients except flax oil and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour mixture into measuring cup or other vessel.
  3. Stir in flax oil.
  4. Drink.
  5. When done, check teeth for blueberry bits!

Mm, a very nice breakfast on the way to work. Simple, easy and tasty. I did however end up with blueberry bits in my teeth by the time I got to work... but a great smoothie non the less! Thanks Netgirl.

I found this just as yummy as Netgirl’s Smoothie #3 (banana-raspberry) Smoothie #3 (banana-raspberry), and I am really pleased to have found both recipes because they have both used such wonderfully healthy ingredients. I’ve made and enjoyed this several times now. This morning, I added a handful of sunflower seeds, and some Greek yoghurt, simply because they are ingredients I often use in smoothies. This is a recipe that can easily be modified or adapted to accommodate such taste preferences. I’ve made this for Pick a Chef 2006. Thank you Netgirl for a fabulous recipe!
