Image

  • ¼ cup Chobani plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup fresh strawberries
  • ½ cup frozen strawberries
  • ½ cup frozen mango
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp. flax seeds

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until completely emulsified. For a thicker consistency, add less water or more frozen fruit. Garnish with another pinch of flaxseeds and enjoy!

Featured Ingredient: Flaxseeds

      Flaxseeds are an excellent source of the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Although ALA is a shorter-chain fatty acid, it does contain many health benefits such as reducing the risk for heart disease, and, according to some studies, decreasing the risk for breast cancer or slowing breast tumor growth in women. Flaxseeds are also considered nutritionally exceptional for their high levels of dietary fiber, iron, and potassium.
