Beveri Flax Giveaway + Cherry Flax Smoothie Recipe

A rep from a company called beveri recently contacted me about sampling/reviewing their flax products. We agreed that I was not in any way obligated to write the review and I wasn’t going to receive any compensation.

I was eager to try beveri’s products, because flax seeds are quite terrific health-wise. They are a great source of fiber and essential fatty acids and they are linked in numerous studies to a decreased risk for certain cancers; many health experts recommend adding flax oil as well as well as 2 tablespoons of ground flax to your daily diet.

I tried and really liked beveri’s ground flax with dried blueberries in a couple of smoothies, including the cherry one you see below. The flax is very fresh and is very finely ground. It blends so well in a smoothie that you don’t even know it’s there. These flax seeds are packaged to be shelf-stable for at least a year- really great news, because the last thing you want is to use flax seeds that have gone rancid.

Their ground flax with dried blueberries has just a little tiny bit of sugar- it adds a nice bit of sweetness to a smoothie. I also tried it sprinkled on cooked oatmeal, and again, I liked it a lot. Other ways to use ground flax include sprinkling them on cold cereals or salads, and mixing them with water to use as a substitute for eggs.

Since I’m definitely recommending their flax and since the folks at beveri were so generous with the amount of flax seeds they sent me, I’d love to send some of it your way. I have three 1 pound bags of flax to give away. One is plain unflavored ground flax, one has dried mixed berries, and one has dried cranberries (again, with just a touch of sugar).

To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment letting me know if you’ve used flax seeds in your diet before, and how. If you haven’t used them before, you can let me know how you plan to try them.

I will pick the three winners at random. You have until Monday April 19th at midnight to enter the beveri flax giveaway. I can only ship to US and Canadian residents. Thanks for participating in the giveaway and good luck!

  3. I like to add ground flax seed to a green salad – along with bee pollen and hemp seed. Also sprinkle flax seed on yogurt and sauteed vegies.

  4. You’re smoothie looks delish!

    I used flax seed all the time. One of my favorite ways to use it is as an egg substitute in baking. I blend 1 part flax seed with 3 parts water in my blender on high and I put the gel right in the recipe. It has a nice nutty flavor to baked goods.

    Good luck on the Babble poll, I went and voted for you :)

  5. I put flax seed in my granola and on top of my baked breads. I would love to try the ones with fruit (and a touch of sugar) in it! :) Throw my name in the hat please!

  6. wow! That smoothie looks soooo good! I usually put my flax seeds in my bread! But I didn’t even think to add them to a smoothie. Already made smoothies for today (spinach, strawberry, banana, and pineapple) flax will go into them tomorrow! Thanks for the chance to win. =0) Kelly

  7. Cherries don’t grow in my area, darn it, but blueberries have just come into season, and I forward to adapting your recipe for those. I always have flax seeds on hand for bread making, but never thought to use them in a smoothie. Great idea!

  8. I love flaxseed in cookies, bread in addition to breakfast cereal and yogurt. This smoothie looks wonderful! Your photo made me salivate and I LOVE the antique silver spoon! Can’t wait to try it!

  9. I like to add it when I make mixes like pancake, bread, or muffins. Good stuff, Yum! Just be sure to add a little bit extra water.

  10. I make my own granola and add flax seed to it. I also love to eat it ground straight from my hand! The best is whole grain wheat bread with all kinds of seeds, toasted, topped with blackberry jam and finished off with a tablespoon of ground flax. Delicious!

  11. I would love to try the flaxseed sample! I have only used flaxseed oil, so the ground flax would be great to add to cereal and I love the smoothie recipe you posted!

  12. I mix ground flax seeds into my steel cut oats for breakfast, I use whole and ground flax seeds in my homemade granola, and I usually use a couple of tablespoons in my baked goods – in addition to the health benefits I find they add a pleasant texture to muffins and quickbreads. I’ve also recently purchase some almond butter from Trader Joe’s that has flax oil and toasted golden flax seeds mixed in – it is very tasty!

  13. I purchased a pretty big container of ground flax at Costco and so far I have sprinkled it on cereal, in yogurt and on my salad, but I am not sure how else to use it.

  14. Yum! I used to take flax oil capsules to try and bring down my cholesterol, but now I like to sprinkle ground flax in breads and yogurt.

  15. I add flax meal to muffins and breads, not to mention use it in white sauce, substituting part of the flour…. i also add it to pancakes!

  16. I’ve used flax in cookies before, sometimes as an addition, sometimes instead of eggs. I’ve also put it in muffins and pancakes. The whole seeds are nice on the outside of breads too. I use them in this incredible waffle recipe I like (http://teresacooks.com/?p=46) that uses chickpeas, almonds, wheatberries and flax and tastes better than most normal waffles chock full of butter. . .
    yeah, it’s pretty easy to put flax into stuff, I’ve just been forgetting to do it lately.
    thanks for the reminder. The smoothie looks awesome btw, In my opinion everything is more appealing in a Ball glass jar. I’m drinking grape stevia and soda water in one right now.

  19. I sneak flax into almost everything I make. I add it to smoothies, (my favorite is an avocado smoothie) pasta sauce, stuffing at Thanksgiving, taco meat, and anything else I can find. My husband isn’t a fan of eating healthy so I have to hide it where he can see it.

  20. I actually use ground flax seed every morning in my breakfast — whether it’s yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, or an omelette! I actually love the grassy taste and the grainy texture, breakfast isn’t complete without it! However, I’ve never tried flax seeds in a smoothie, so that’ll be my next experiment! Thanks for offering this up!

  21. Yuuuuummy! I will be trying this with frozen banana and fresh cherries – a little mix-up :) I eat flax every day in my millet porridge for breaky.
    I would love to try the dried cranberries and flax because they are my absolutely favourite dried fruit… I could live off them.
