1 Banana, cut and frozen
1 ½ cups liquid of choice. Here are some options: milk, nut milk, soy milk, coconut milk or coconut water
2-3 dates (if you like a sweeter smoothie use 3 dates)
½ large ripe avocado
½ cup spinach
Other optional ingredients:
1-2 Tbsp. of unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup rolled oats (*see note below if using oats)
½ cup frozen mango or berries (instead of banana)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Dash of cinnamon
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
Adding oats to your smoothie will give you a boost of fiber to help power through your day.
A couple of tips for using oats in your smoothies:
- First, add oats into the blender. Blend well before adding the rest of your smoothie ingredients.
- Soak your oats overnight in milk or water. Pour enough liquid to cover the oats, cover and place in the fridge. Then add to blender along with other ingredients.
