Strawberries and bananas make for one of the most popular shake combinations of all time. While the original was already rich in vitamin C and potassium, this version adds calcium, protein, and omega-3s to make a healthy treat that tastes like a rich dessert.

  1. Hi, Fmease. Skim milk is fine, but try to get a type without added milk solids (bluer is actually better) and that is, of course, fortified with vitamins A and D. If you can find organic pastured milk meeting the above criteria, that would be perfect.

  2. Hi, LisaLynn. Flax seed is a seed used for oil or as ingredients in cereals, shakes, breads, and crackers most frequently – it is famous for being very high in omega-3 fatty acids. It is available either ground or whole is found at health-oriented stores, preferably in the refrigeration section. It is recommended to get it whole and grind it yourself in a coffee grinder or electric chopper.
    Regarding the sweetener, instead of regular brown sugar, which is often refined, we suggest raw or coconut sugar, which have tastes similar to brown. Regarding milk, you can definitely use lactose-free, though we do suggest organic and/or pastured/grass-fed.
