I don’t think that I’ve posted a recipe for a good two years now…and then I made THE BEST smoothie I have literally ever had and I just had to share it! I know, I know “THE BEST” is quite the statement, but honestly I took a sip of this smoothie and gasped in shock over its deliciousness. I haven’t fed it to the hubby yet, but not because he won’t like it…because I love it too much to share and I only have 1/2 a banana left (aka. only 1 smoothies worth). The picture doesn’t do it justice, obviously. But what’s a girl to do when you discover absolute deliciousness 5 minutes before you’ve got to run off to work?
Blueberry Hills Smoothie
Sweet blueberries mixed with fragrant cinnamon, creamy almond butter and hormone helping maca root powder. This smoothie will keep you smiling for hours!
Adapted from this recipe.
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
2 tbsp rolled oats (GF as needed)
1 tbsp smooth almond butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp maca root powder
1 tbsp vegan vanilla protein powder*
1 cup of unsweetened cashew milk (of less, if you like a thicker smoothie)
*if you don’t have, or don’t want to use, protein powder- feel free to substitute with 1 tbsp of hemp seeds and a splash of vanilla extract
1.) Throw it all in the blender
2.) Blend away and be happy
mmmmm this looks amazing! I’ve wanted to start putting oats in smoothies, I really wanna try this.
Give it a go and let me know how it turns out! The good thing about just using 2 tbsp is that it blends in very well, even if you don’t have a super intense blender 🙂
Sounds so refreshing! Just look in the mirror before you get to work. Blueberries always make for a surprising smile!
