We recommend this smoothie be taken daily to support brain health with Omega-3 fatty acids. It can be used as an alternative to Phosphatidylserine (PS) because the body can create PS from the Omega-3.

1 cup of milk, or non-dairy milk alternative

½ cup of frozen dark berries (antioxidants)

1 Tbs. sunflower seeds, raw (energy)

1 Tbs. pumpkin seeds, raw (protein)

1 Tbs. hemp and/or ground flax seed (Omega-3)

1 Tbs. honey

½ tsp. vanilla

Some recipes that I would suggest for low-sugar or no-sugar desserts would be:


3 cups mashed ripe bananas

1/3 c. applesauce

2 c. oats

¼ c. almond milk

½ c. raisins

1 tsp. vanilla

½ tsp. cardamom

½ tsp. coriander

                Bake at 350* for 15 to 20 minutes


1 cup dry oatmeal, use blender to make ½ cup into flour

2/3 cup coconut flakes

½ cup sunflower seed butter or peanut butter

½ cup ground flax seed

½ cup mini chocolate chips (optional)

1/3 c. honey

1 tsp. vanilla

                Mix all thoroughly.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Makes 20-25 one-inch balls. 


For every ½ cup of seeds:

Place 2 c. water and 2 Tbs salt in a small saucepan.

Bring to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.

With 1 Tbs. olive oil, spread a single layer on a cookie sheet.

Bake top rack at 350* for 20 minutes.

I would also suggest making no-sugar added smoothies from blended fruit.  Banana alone, or Mixed berries alone as a base often do not require additional sweetening.  To increase the value to the brain, add 1 Tbs. of ground flax seeds into each serving.  Experiment for yourself and see what your family likes.
