Flax to the Max

Apple Surprise
6-12 peeled apples
1 cup raisins or currants
1/4 cup water
1 cup chopped walnuts
4 heaping Tbsp. ground flaxseed
1 heaping Tbsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. of date sugar or maple syrup (optional)
Remove the seeds and cores from the apples, and cut into chunks. Place the currants (or raisins) in the bottom of a small pot and barely cover with water. Add the apple chunks on top and steam on lowest flame possible for seven minutes, until raisins are soft and apples are still a little firm. Mix with the remaining ingredients and chop into smaller pieces.

Strawberry Banana Freeze
1/4 cup soy milk
4 frozen bananas (peeled and frozen in advance)
6-10 oz. frozen organic strawberries
4 heaping Tbsp. of ground flaxseed
¼ tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
Add to VitaMix or food processor and blend into a smooth ice cream consistency. Stir in the flaxseed. This recipe serves four people—one banana and one tablespoon of flaxseed per person.

Dr. Flax’s Sesame Seasoning
1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
1 Tbsp. ground sesame seeds (raw, unhulled)
1 tsp. onion flakes
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. VegiZest
Grind the seeds in a VitaMix dry container or use a coffee grinder. Mix it all together and put in seasoning shaker. Store in refrigerator or freezer, but always put it out on the table so your family and guests can season their food to taste without using salt.

Nice blog, nice recipes. Bur just one
question -- in your strawberry banana
freeze, everything but the ground flaxseed gets blended in the vitamix.
Why not toss in the ground flaxseed too,
and save a step?
