It’s definitely a green smoothie the kiddos will enjoy! If you have a regular blender, you might want to add the raisins last as they can get stuck around the blades. Of course, if you are a Blendtec or Vitamix Blender Babe, raisins are no big thaaaang!

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
There’s good reason why raisins are considered nature’s candy! This dried fruit has over 70% fructose, but it’s a much healthier snack than candy. Raisins are loaded with iron – just one cup provides about 6mg – and iron is needed for concentration, relieve irritability and prevent fatigue, and is necessary for producing hemoglobin. Raisins are also an excellent source of fiber, which helps with digestion and regularity, and lower your risk of colorectal cancer.  Raisins also contains boron, which is vital for bone health and helps prevent osteoporosis.

Flaxseed was cultivated in Babylon as early as 3000 BC. In the 8th century, King Charlemagne believed so strongly in the health benefits of flaxseed that he passed laws requiring his subjects to consume it. Now, thirteen centuries later, some experts say we have preliminary research to back up what Charlemagne suspected. Some call it one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. There’s some evidence it may help reduce your risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. (Source: WebMd)

    This tasted excellent but I do think you need to cut down on the frozen stuff. Mine turned to ice cream consistency in my Blendtec. Maybe just use a fresh banana instead? I had to add a little more almond milk and pulse it a few times to get it to the right consistency. A+ for taste though!
