Fruit & Flaxseed Smoothie

Feeling rushed in the morning? Well, no, this isn’t a breakfast pastry like the other recipes in this section, but it’s just as quick to grab—really. Surely you’ve got five minutes to mix up this delicious, healthful eye-opener.


2 tablespoons flaxseeds (or 1/4 cup ground)
1 cup whole frozen strawberries (about 10)
6 whole dried apricots, pitted
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 medium-size banana
1-1/2 cups low-fat vanilla soymilk, chilled


Place whole flaxseeds in a clean spice or coffee grinder and whir until pulverized.

Place fruits and soymilk in a blender.

Add powdered flaxseeds, cover, and process until mixture is smooth, about 30 seconds.

Pour into glasses and serve.
