Strawberry & quinoa smoothie with linseeds & vanilla

on 25/04/2010

A divine strawberry quinoa drink!

Today, I made this lovely drinkable breakfast!
I had some strawberries left in the fridge & wanted to use quinoa flakes too.
Print me!
Recipe: For 2 larger breakfast glasses
Ingredients:
500 ml of mild, unsweetened yoghurt
10 to 12 juicy & ripe strawberries, cleaned, hulled & cut into 2
2 teaspoons of gluten-free vanilla extract
1 level tablespoon of broken linseeds
3 tablespoons of medium-sized quinoa flakes
** To serve, if you like: a drizzle of agave syrup
Method:
1. Place all the ingredients into a blender & blend until completely smooth.
If you do not have a blender, place it all in 1 larger bowl & mix until completely smooth. Taste.
I like my breakfast to be not too sweet!
2. If you like it a bit more sweeter, add a drizzle of agave syrup to your smoothies.

  50. Sophie says:

    @ HH: Quinoa flakes & linseeds make the smoothie a bit thicker & it is a breakfast in a glas anyway.@ Une cuillère pour les délices, 5star Foodie,Nirvana's kitchen, Gloria, Claudia, Koko, Nadji: I am glad that you all like it! Enjoy!@ The diva on a diet: Linseeds are flaxseeds & they taste a bit nutty & they are so good for your health & for your intestins. They help me a lot in that area! You have to grind these flaxseeds or buy them broken because otherwise your intestins won't absorp the good qualities!!@ Juliana, apcgouter, Grace, Kirsten, Lisa: thank you!@ Carolyn Jung: Linseeds are flaxseeds & they taste a bit nutty & they are so good for your health & for your intestins. They help me a lot in that area! You have to grind these flaxseeds or buy them broken because otherwise your intestins won't absorp the good qualities!!

  51. Sophie says:

    @ Paz, Elra, Foodcreate, Nora: Enjoy & thanks!@ Esme: I made a link to quinoa flakes in my recipe. Just click on the quinoa flakes words. I am glad you want to try it. I buy my quinoa flakes in my bio food health shop. I am sure you will find it at larger organic shops.@ Nic: You can also substitute oats for quinoa flakes. they are equally healthy!

  52. Sophie says:

  56. Using quinoa in a smoothie is something I never would have thought of, but it's a great idea. It adds fiber and protein, and the flavor is delicious.

  57. Tastiness aside – as that's a given with your cooking, this just sounds so healthy and filling. A perfect breakfast on the go.
