Breakfast Smoothie

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine told me about this smoothie recipe she has been making for her family. She said that they didn't change anything in their diet or lifestyle, except this smoothie, and they are all losing weight. The next week I was teaching a cooking class and many of the women said they had been drinking this same smoothie (as a substitute for breakfast) and they were having the same weight loss results. So, I am not making any promises, but it seems there is something special about this smoothie, so I thought I would share.

Raspberry Coconut Smoothie
You can substitute any berries of your choice in this recipe.
Serves 2
3 tablespoons golden flax seeds
1/2 cup coconut milk (preferably "Thai kitchen" brand)
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 banana
1 Tablespoon honey
Blend flax seeds in blender until seeds are ground. Add coconut milk, water, berries, banana and honey. Blend until smooth.

*to change it up a bit, you can add different extracts (almond is my favorite) or, omit the berries, add an extra banana, and then a tablespoon of cacao powder for a chocolaty shake.
