Rich and flavorful, this keto friendly berry breakfast smoothie has it all! It’s easy to whip up and made primarily from freezer and shelf-stable ingredients! Flax seeds are a nice addition to the mix, what we love most about them is the added omega-3 boost they provide.
Want to get the most out of your flax seeds? Buy them whole and grind just before using. This keeps their nutrition profile and omega-3’s at their optimal levels. We also recommend storing them in the freezer to keep them fresh. Golden flax is the mildest version and tends to be a favorite in the KidneyRD kitchen.
