The addition of flaxseed gives it a slightly nutty finish, which is perfect for the flavour dynamic in combination with the coconut.

As it is made with vanilla almond milk, even dairy-free families can enjoy it. You can add less ice, or more, depending on your thickness preferences.

You can make this dairy free breakfast smoothie ahead of time. Freeze your ingredients, minus the almond milk, in a freezer safe container and mix as desired. As this is the back to school season is upon us, a few of these on hand is a great hunger buster for kids of all ages!
