Have you ever tried putting flax in your smoothie? I did recently for the first time and realised I’ve been missing out. It makes the texture so much smoother and adds even more fibre, so I decided it’s something I need to be doing regularly.

This Strawberry Smoothie Bowl with Banana & Flax is also the first smoothie bowl I’ve ever shared on the blog! I was a little late to the party when it came to smoothie bowls, but I’ve recently found a major love for them and have really enjoyed adding oats, granola and nuts for a satisfying and hearty breakfast.

Why Use Flax Milk?


Being a big fan of using whole, nutrient-dense foods in my creations, Manitoba Milling Company’s Unsweetened Milled Whole Seed Flax Beverage seemed like a natural choice for this recipe. I love that flax adds extra fibre, omega-3 and plant-based protein to my smoothie bowl.

And unlike a lot of other plant-based milks which tend to be watered down, I’ve really enjoyed the fact that Manitoba Milling Company’s Flax Beverage is rich in flax. This milk is smooth and creamy but refreshingly you can really taste the flax!

Also, being a big fan of buying local, I love knowing that the flax was grown and milled in Manitoba on the Pizzey family’s fifth generation farm. Using just the highest quality flax seeds, they’ve created a milk that tastes rich and nutrient-packed, and is perfect for adding to smoothies.

Strawberry Smoothie Bowl with Banana & Flax – the recipe


For anyone who isn’t sure, smoothie bowls are no different to regular smoothies. The only difference is that you serve the smoothie in a bowl and are able to enjoy lots of delicious toppings on it.

Feel free to add your own toppings as you like, but my suggestions would be to add crunchy foods like nuts, seeds, oats and even granola to make it really satisfying. There’s something delicious about enjoying a smooth, creamy smoothie topped with nuts and oats – it’s incredibly filling and hearty.

To make this Strawberry Smoothie Bowl extra-satisfying, make sure you add some protein powder to the mix. This will make it even more filling and will ensure it powers you through until lunchtime. Enjoy!
