This afternoon, Peter & I were a bit hungry. I wanted to make a fruit smoothy & added some broken flaxseed to make it more filling & healthier. This delicious smoothy looked like the kind of smoothies we all had to eat or drink when we were kids. It looked like better food smoothies, which I didn’t like to eat when I was at a very young age.

Betterfood from the brand Lu, were the kind of dry cookies that moms & dads used to mix into home-made fruit smoothies, to enrich the smoothy. I didn’t like it all & always spat out my smoothy. Yikes! You have to know that was for me about 35-40 years ago. Ha!
So, this version is way better for me, healthier & more tasty too! With the flaxseed mixed into the fruit smoothy, it resembles the mixed better food cookies Enjoy!
