Blueberry Banana and Oatmeal Smoothie
I have been on a smoothie kick lately, especially enjoying experimenting with spinach, kale and other greens.
They are not only healthy, as I've said before, but can be very tasty. I don't know why so many are scared at the thought of mixing fruits and leafy greens in a smoothie.....but I can understand because I was somewhat apprehensive at first.
Never fear, the wonderful Gina at Skinny Taste has tons of amazing, tasty smoothie recipes for us.
This is another one from her and I love it.
1/2 cup raw quick oats*
2 cups water
1/2 cup Almond Breeze vanilla unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 ripe medium banana
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp raw sugar
1/2 cup ice
Cook oats and water in a small pot for about a minute or two, stirring often until it becomes thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and let it cool a few minutes.
In a blender add almond milk, blueberries, banana, cooled oats, vanillas, sugar and ice. Blend on high until very smooth. Pour in a glass over ice. Enjoy!!
Makes 3 1/2 cups.
