Strawberry, Banana, mint and Flax Seed Smoothie

These are the famous healthy smoothies I make almost every night. It is hard sometimes to get fruits everyday so this is a simple way to incorporate this food group. My kid loves them as you can make different versions, he calls them ICES. You can also freeze these using ice Popsicles molds for a later use, they work wonderfully and are much more nutritious.

This smoothie version contains bananas and strawberries although we use raspberries and other fruits quite often. The berry fruits we use are organic though as these fruits are more aggravated by pesticides than other fruits would. To sweetened we normally use maple syrup but today I did not have any on hand so we used sugar :-(. In any event still good. If you try to make these the sky is the limit, any combination sure it is going to be good.
