This is my favorite morning cleansing drink. The fax seeds add extra fiber and omega-3 fats.
With the flax seeds, it’s a little gritty tasting. I make a full container and sip it for several hours. These juices do not keep in the fridge. You need to drink them within a few hours of making them.
Recipe Tip: You can blend it smooth if leave it on the Vita-Mix for a few minutes. Do not add ice until after it’s smooth. I like to drink it a little “sludgy.” The ice and lemon make all the differenc in taste for me.
