Strawberry & quinoa smoothie with linseeds & vanilla

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.
Recipe: For 2 larger breakfast glasses
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
** To serve, if you like: a drizzle of agave syrup
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.

  1. I always use flaxseed – need to try the quinoa flakes. My absolute favorite way to wake up in the morning. I send my daughter off to school with a thermos full! Yours is springtime-pretty.

  2. What a beautiful, and no doubt delicious, smoothie! How interesting to use the lindseeds … what do they taste like? I really like the idea of the quinoa flakes as well, to give the shake some body.

  3. it's a stunning color, and i'm sure the quinoa gives it an amazing texture and beaucoup health benefits!

  4. quinoa flakes are amazing and so versatile. I've never thought of adding to a smoothie, sounds nutritious 🙂

  5. The second recipe using quinoa flakes today! This looks healthy and delicious! What a great idea, Sophie! I can't wait to try it.

  6. I really want to like Quinoa as it's so good or you but I just can't get on with it. Haven't come across flakes before so could be a new way of sneaking it into things. Will have to hunt it down and try this out – who doesn't love Strawberry smoothies?

  7. This looks so pretty and healthy. I need to find some quinoa flakes. Great way to start the day.

  8. Sophie, the color of your smoothie is just beautiful. I'll have to order the flakes from my healthfood store, but I really want to give this a try. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings…Mary

  12. I have GOT to get on the quinoa bandwagon, Sophie! But I have never heard of quinoa flakes. Hope I can find some at Whole Foods because this smoothie looks delicious!

  13. I love it when something that looks so delicious can be so healthy. Especially since my raspberries and strawberries will be ready in a month or so, and I still have blackberries in the freezer. Now where's my blender…

  14. @ 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.
