Apple, Green Pepper, and Flax Smoothie

Soy, rice, and almond milk are popular dairy alternatives that have been around for some time. Coconut milk made its entrance like a blast from the past in recent years. The humble santan of my childhood which was used primarily for cooking and never as a beverage, now comes in modern clinical cartons. It is all the rage! How times have changed.

I recently discovered flax milk, the most recent milk alternative to hit the store shelves. Made of cold pressed flax seed oil mixed with water, it contains heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. The milk is rich and creamy with little to no after taste. It actually tastes surprisingly like regular milk. I am really impressed!

Since this flax milk is lightly sweetened with 7 grams of sugar per serving, there is no need for additional sweetener. The green bell pepper gives the smoothie a crisp, cool, and slightly grassy taste. Do give this Apple, Green Pepper, and Flax Smoothie a try.

  5. Flax milk, that’s interesting. It seems like food companies are never out of ideas in terms of creating new foods and food / milk alternatives. I’ll have to give this type of milk a try. Thanks for introducing it along with this refreshing recipe!
