How Much Flax Seeds In Smoothie

How Much Flax Seeds In Smoothie

Now, the next question is, how much flaxseed should you add to smoothies?

The answer is 1-3 tablespoons. This is the sweet spot, if you add too many flaxseeds, this will impact the taste negatively.

1-3 tablespoons are the perfect amount if you want to get both benefits and taste you want from your smoothies.

We typically tend to use 1-2 tablespoons of flaxseeds in our smoothies.

We rarely ever use 3 tablespoons, but when we have, we made sure to combine the flaxseeds with other strong-tasting ingredients so that flaxseeds don’t overpower everything.

Best Flaxseed For Smoothies


When it comes to the type of flaxseed you add to your smoothies, it does matter!

The best flaxseed for smoothies is ground or milled flaxseed. If you use whole linseed, it will be difficult for your blender to crush it, so you may end up with bits in your smoothies.

Nobody likes bits in their smoothies.

We like to use 365 by Whole Foods Market Flaxseeds. They are ground and blend really well with your smoothie ingredients.  

We have been using that brand since we started making smoothies. 

But, of course, you can use any brand you like, just make sure it’s ground flaxseed!
