The flaxseed meal in this shake is reminiscent of graham crackers, and with the fruit and coconut milk, it really tastes a bit like pie. Hence the name was born. The shake is loaded with healthy fats and fiber to keep you full and energized right through to lunch.

Cook's Notes:

Please note that this shake is not very sweet. It is meant to keep you full and prevent a crash before lunch from too much sugar. You can use any frozen fruit. Chocolate coconut milk beverage also works great with cherries or strawberries! You can add more honey (or other sweetener) to taste. You can substitute unsweetened coconut milk if you want to reduce the sugar even further. The type of yogurt used really makes a difference, too. Stick to Greek yogurt for the protein, and buy a high quality brand (Fage(R) is my favorite). Any frozen fruit and nut butter work well. The combinations are endless!

Super yummy smoothie! I made this for my 15 month old daughter and myself and we both gobbled it up! I used a frozen mix of berries instead of just frozen strawberries. And then I used soaked dates instead of honey (because of the potential botulism risk with honey and little ones). Still came out tasty and we'll add this smoothie to our morning breakfast routine! I particularly like this one for toddlers because of the high quantity of healthy fats -- which are so important for developing brains -- and the high protein content from the greek yogurt. Yet it still appealed to her taste buds...Thanks!!! Read More

Used vanilla Greek yogurt and sub'd wheat germ (it worked well) when I couldn't find my flax seed. My berries weren't frozen so I did add some ice to the blender. Really did taste sort of like strawberry pie and it also left me feeling full (lots of fiber in this one). Thanks wisweetp this one will go into my breakfast smoothie rotation we really liked it.

Great recipe I used blueberries and peanut butter powder instead of almond butter Chia seed instead of flaxseed. But the recipe is endless to the possibilities. Try it I think you'll love it the only sweeteners I used were honey and the natural sweet berries. Read More
