This smoothie contains many of the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids we all strive to include in our diets. Flaxseeds or flax oil is the greatest non animal food source of these acids. The avocado and nuts/seeds are other good sources of various omega acids and make this very filling. Dark leefy greens are the other excellent source of omega 3’s. The banana’s sweetness makes this smoothie ideal for those who don’t want to totally taste their greens. (like me ;) Blueberries contain the most antioxidants of all fruits and are added for extra health benefits. I like alot of blueberrys so my smoothie has more of a red/purple color than green.
Pomegranates are in season and its time to play with them! Pomegranates are filled with antioxidants, and they aid in cell rejuvenation which helps heal wounds and gives the skin a natural healthy glow. This recipe is simple and satisfying.

I definitely ripped this off from another recipe on this site called strawberry banana cookies. I just happened to have everything thing on hand but strawberries…and love chocolate! thus, my first raw recipe, Chocolate Banana Cookies!
These could also be a nut free cookie if done with sunflower seeds….I havent tried it, but it could probably work.
