Quark-Linseed Oil Smoothie Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons Linseeds
  • 1 portion of Quark-Linseed Oil Cream (made from 100 g quark and 3 tablespoons cold-pressed linseed oil thoroughly blended and optionally sweetened with 1 teaspoon Honey; see recipe)
  • A portion of raw seasonal fruit
  • Berries
  • 1-2 cups  freshly made juice,
  • spices, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, etc to taste


Make the quark-linseed oil cream as usual but in this instance milk isn’t essential but make sure it is thoroughly blended and the oil is fully incorporated.  Grind the linseeds to a fine powder in a dedicated electric coffee grinder and place in a blender with the fruit, berries, spices and fresh juice, whiz until smooth.  Then add the quark-linseed oil cream and blend briefly add more juice if required.

Variations:  From this basic recipe, the only limit is your imagination!

Vary the fruits and spices according to the seasons and what tickles your tastebuds that day.

Leave out the honey, make savoury smoothies instead – a sort of chilled vegetable soup.

Try a Budwig Borscht with beetroot, chives, celery, caraway, apple & nettle juice and a pinch of cayenne!

I see there is worldwide support for the Budwig protocol through various forums. This website shares information that makes it easier to follow the Budwig Diet in the UK and keep it as close as possible to Johanna Budwig’s original diet. Linseed oil and ground linseed has certainly helped me, to take more control of my own health and seeing my health improve by doing so. This is why I feel this protocol needs to be more widely known. This Budwig diet is too good not to share. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me. I highly recommend Flax Farm for all of the products I use for my recipes.
