  1. Hey there! I got this book and am madly trying smoothie recipes every day (seriously yum!). I’ve got a question about flax seed. Should I buy ground flax seed for smoothies or does it even mater (ground v. whole)? I’ve been using chia seeds, because I’ve got a bag, but was stumped when I went to Amazon for flax seed. Thanks!

    1. So glad you’re enjoying them! On the flax, it doesn’t really matter but ground is preferable so that it’s easier to digest (the seeds are too small for a blender to grind fully). Plus, you can then use it for baking, cereal, etc.

      Would you be willing to put up a review of the book on amazon! There isn’t one yet and it certainly helps increase people’s confidence. Especially when I’m telling them to put spinach in their smoothies!:)
