Peach Spinach Smoothie {with flax seeds}

Spinach is one of the leafy greens I have ready to use in the garden right now. It’s also the only green my husband will eat in his salads.

Because of this, I don’t normally use spinach in my green smoothie recipes. I tend to use lettuce, chard or kale. Like I did in the cucumber kale smoothie.

But I had some fresh peaches and fresh strawberries on hand and I wanted to use them. So I went out to the garden and picked some spinach leaves.

The peaches were so ripe and juicy. I had originally only bought two. The big kid ate one and I used the other in a peach margarita. They were so good I went back the next day and bought a bagful of them. Those didn’t last long either.

The strawberries had a short life in the house too. But that’s always the case with berries. Between berry smoothies and berry cocktails, they go fast.

Good thing the farmer’s markets are now open. I have a feeling I’ll be spending a lot of time (and money) there this summer.

The secret ingredient in this peach spinach smoothie is flax seeds. Flax seeds have a variety of health benefits. They have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular and digestive health benefits to name just a few. It’s easier for the body to digest flax seeds if they are ground instead of whole. This can be easily done with a spice grinder right before you plan to use them.

    I am so glad you posted this recipe. It looked delicious so I decided to read. I didn’t know that flaxseed is an antiinflammatory. I have Lupus and I’ve been suffering the last few days from really bad pain. I think I’ll start throwing some flaxseed in my shakes and oatmeal and see if it helps! By the way, you should link this on our Pin It! Tuesday!
