Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to take both flax seed oil and fibres.


These are basics to choose from to add to your smoothie base:

2 tablespoons of oatmeal or porridge oats / or hemp flour / Flax fibre or Flax LSA
1/2 cup of yoghurt (probiotic)
1 tablespoon of waihi bush organic farm flax seed oil (Hemp, Chia or any blend can go in)
Choice of liquid

  • Milk – oat, almond, rice or plain full fat
  • Cup of cold green tea if dairy intolerant
  • Cranberry juice
  • Coconut water.
  • Just plain water.

Probiotic powder if need to balance gut bacteria and give an extra boost – active from the fridge
Nuts - almonds, macadamia, cashew, or walnuts
Dates are packed full of goodness
Add egg if you need protein – it will emulsify and go creamy

Then add your options

- Berry Smoothie
A handful of berries – fruits in season – plums, apples, pears, kiwi, berries etc…
Half banana (I use frozen)
One heaped teaspoon of flax fibre Fruity Boost
One teaspoon of chia seeds

-Green Smoothie
Handful of pineapple chunks frozen and or kiwi fruit
Half banana (I use frozen)
One heaped teaspoon of Greens fibre
One teaspoon of chia seeds
You can always add fresh cucumber, spinach, kale (I blend these in bullet and place in icecube trays in the freezer to use in smoothies)

- Fibre Smoothie
Half banana (I use frozen) - potassium
One heaped teaspoon of Flax fibre
Vanilla pod
One teaspoon of chia seeds
6 Almonds

How to make:

Place all the ingredients into a blender or use a blender stick. Best to drink immediately to preserve the nutrients or chill for no longer than an hour. Great to get children to help make them.
