Flax seed – ¼ teaspoon

Cinnamon – ¼ teaspoon or one pinch per taste (optional)

Ice – ¼ cup (crushed)

Instructions:

  • Blend the almonds; flax seed with little milk first and then add all other ingredients, blend again to form an even smoothie. If you think its too thick, you can add some more milk to reach your desired consistency.

Note: you can add some more fruits or nuts if you like. For making this smoothie even your home made yoghurt will also work, try to take out all the yoghurt water first before adding home made yoghurt. Enjoy!
