Prep Time: 5 minutes
3 Tbsp rolled oats
2 Tbsp sliced almonds or 1 Tbsp almond butter
1 medium ripe banana
1.25 oz. frozen raspberries or blueberries (1/4 cup)
2 oz. frozen strawberries (about 2 large or 6 small)
1/2 cup cold water*
2.5 oz. fresh spinach (2 1/2 cups packed)
6 ice cubes
1/4 tsp cinnamon + 1/8 tsp vanilla extract – for blueberry version
1/8 tsp almond extract – for raspberry version
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender (if using blueberries add cinnamon and vanilla, if using raspberries add almond extract). Blend until well pureed. Serve immediately.
If needed you can add a little extra water. If using a high powered blender you shouldn’t need to.
I’ve tried this with almond milk but I feel that since it’s already a creamy smoothie without it, and since almonds are added it’s not needed. But if you’d like it even richer and creamier you can use it in place of water.
