You can't shop 'till you drop without fuel! This satisfying smoothie is full of plant-based protein from almond butter, and really sticks with you (thanks to the oats). Now you're ready for power walking, long lines...and a bit of impromptu holiday fun.
Serves 1 or 2
- 2 cups of your favorite milk (e.g. low or non-fat milk, almond milk, cashew milk)
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 1 banana (frozen, in pieces)
- 2 teaspoons of finely ground oats
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
- 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
If you are using a high-powered blender, you may be able to grind the flaxseeds and oats right in the blender. Otherwise, use a clean coffee or spice grinder to grind the flaxseeds and oats into a fine powder.
Combine the ground flaxseeds and oats, milk, banana, and almond butter in a blender.
Blend until smooth, adding more liquid if necessary until the mixture is smooth.
Pour into a glass and serve immediately.
