After hearing about the um…health benefits…of flaxseed oil (primarily α-Linolenic acid), I’ve been trying to find ways to work it into my diet somehow. It kind of has a flavor, so you either need to suck it up, work with it, or mask it. I think this recipe masks it.
The bottle suggested yogurt or cottage cheese, honey and flavors like fruit, juice, chocolate, cinnamon, et. al. So I decided to give something like that a try. Its definitely drinkable, but it has a flavor — I’m not sure if that’s from the flaxseed oil or from the amber agave nectar, which has a strong maple-y flavor to it.
- 2 Tbs flaxseed oil
- 3/4 cup plain yogurt
- Agave nectar
- Handful of red raspberries
- 1 banana
- Some homemade peach mango juice.
Looking at that list, maybe some of those don’t go so well together, but I kind of like making big messes like that.
Anyway, toss all that in a blender, and drink up.
