It's been so hot here in Seattle, there's nothing much to do but sit in the shade and sip fruit smoothies.

I run my flax seeds through my coffee grinder - that might help with the not-so-smoothness.

Annette! Awesome idea. But one extra step. Eh...we'll be okay with the tiny, chewy seeds.

You could try putting the flax seeds in first and pulsing the blender a few times to powder them. Most blenders these days are capable of grinding coffee, so if they can do that, the flax should be no problem. :D
Hubby and I have started drinking fruit smoothies at least twice a week in lieu of coffee. Delicious way to get in several servings of fruit at one time.

Bethany, I wonder if my blender could pull that off. The seeds are sooo tiny. Will give it a try.

You have GOT to add a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh spinach leaves to this. You can't taste or see it, but it adds lots of vitamins and the kids will still gladly drink it.
(or blend up a whole bag of spinach before hand, and parcel it out into little half cup baggies which go into the freezer. Dump one baggie into the next smoothie.)
