Kick-start your day with a nutrient-dense smoothie

My Healthy Dish offers healthier alternatives to the dishes you love as well as introducing you to new foods that you may have over looked before.

Avocado, flaxseed and berries make this a powerhouse smoothie

I believe smoothies are the powerhouses of healthy quick meals. It is the sure-fire way of getting in nutrient-dense foods in one glass. With so many fruits and even vegetables to combine, your kids will never get bored with a breakfast smoothie every morning.

Make your smoothie a complete meal, I always make sure there is enough protein in all my smoothies. For my protein source I used one cup of Dairy Pure 2 percent reduced fat milk. It has 10 grams of protein in each cup and the bonus is you don't have to worry about artificial growth hormones.

Right before I took my twin daughters for a morning swim, I made them this delicious berry smoothie full of nutrients to give them fuel for their Sunday fun day. If you buy your flaxseed whole, please remember to grind them in a food processor or coffee grinder prior to blending. Eating flaxseed whole will not release its nutrients because its rough exterior will not break down during digestion.
