Recipe: Oat Cookie Dough Protein Smoothie

Serves 1 x 16 oz with 425 cals
or 2 x 8 oz with 213 cals

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetended Almond Milk (or your preferred milk)
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free rolled Oats*
  • 1 medium Banana, frozen
  • 1 tbsp Cashew butter, or another
  • 2 tbsp Hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp unsweetened Cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2-4 Ice cubes

Topping: Chocolate shavings (optional)

* Soaking the oats in the almond milk for a couple of hours helps remove the grittiness the oats can give to your smoothie if you do not have a super-fast blender.

Blend all ingredients except the chocolate shavings. Pour into a glass or two glasses, top with the shavings and enjoy.
