While thumbing through Twitter last week I came across a tweet by a good followee for a smoothie recipe. I’m always looking for smoothie ideas as I usually have one a day. This one stood out with an ingredient I had never considered: Oats. A protein powerhouse in itself it was mixed with some tasty ingredients and began salivating for this smoothie.
1 1/2 frozen banana
1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup chocolate almond milk
1 heaping spoonful of almond butter
Blend in VitaMix for 20 seconds until smooth.
A few days passed and still I had no chance to make this smoothie, one that I knew would be filling and should be an early morning drink. Once I got around to trying it I was blown away. Wow! This things rocks! Very tasty, very filling and full of protein. You’ll definitely need a Vitamix for this smoothie to blend up the oatmeal. I don’t think a standard blender is up to the job.
If smoothies are your thing or even if they’re not you need to treat yourself to a Vegan Man Cave Smoothie. The dude is onto something here. I can’t believe he hasn’t patented this yet. I fully expect to see him on a late night infomercial soon touting this smoothie. (Dude, get on this!)
