We are big on smoothies around our house. It’s a good way to get nutrition into my kids while satisfying their craving for a “treat”. I like to try adding different things to make them healthier. This week we tried Vanilla Flaxmilk. Made from cold-pressed flax oil, Flaxmilk is the first and only all-natural dairy-free milk product. Several studies have indicated that ingesting flax on a daily basis has the potential to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. It’s contains omega-3 essential fatty acids (1100 mg per serving!) known for heart-healthy benefits.
You can enjoy flaxmilk by the glass, as a replacement in recipes for milk, in smoothies, pudding, ice cream, sauces and more. Flaxmilk is perfect for those who wish to eat a gluten-free, lactose free, raw or vegan diet. While we used it in smoothies, I did try a gulp of it plain and was surprised at how good it tasted! Seriously, my kids would gulp the stuff down like chocolate milk if I let them. Normally I use these types of things in smoothies to mask the taste with fruit but that is totally unnecessary with the vanilla flaxmilk. It’s sweet and tasty! An 8 ounce serving is only 60 calories and as much calcium as dairy milk. Flaxmilk contains no cholesterol or trans fat. It’s completely plant based and enriched with vitamins A, D and B12.
Flaxmilk comes in original and vanilla flavors and is sold in ½ gallon containers at Wal-Mart stores across the country for $2.98. For more information on Flaxmilk, visit www.flaxusa.com.
