 Sesame-Flaxseed Shake with Banana  
The following is one in an ongoing series of columns entitled Fabulous Functional Foods by . View all columns in series
The following recipe addresses the special diet considerations for: dairy-free; gluten-free; vegan; vegetarian; anti-cancer; cardiovascular disease; diabetes; inflammatory bowel diseases

Serves 2 as a dessert or snack.
This seed-fruit shake beats a regular milkshake, both in terms of taste and nutritive value. The sesame seeds contain lots of calcium and other minerals and the flaxseed is rich in alpha-linolenic acid, which is anti-inflammatory. The shake has to be consumed immediately to avoid oxidation of the alpha-linolenic acid and the enzymes from the fresh fruit.

  • 2 tbs flaxseed, ground finely
  • 1 tbs sesame seeds, ground finely
  • 1 stick of cinnamon, ground finely
  • 1/2-1 tsp pure vanilla powder
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1/2 ripe banana, cut into thin slices
  • 8-10 fresh strawberries (or other berries in season)
  • 7-8 ice cubes
Cooking Instructions
1) Combine all the ingredients in a food processor, whiz until smooth, and add more ice-cold water if the shake is too thick.
2) Serve the shake in two tall glasses.

Note: Measurements are provided in both U.S. and European/metric units.
