I make this Smoothie all the time! It’s a super easy morning treat for those of us that aren’t really big breakfast eaters or else don’t have much time in the mornings to prepare a grand feast! lol ~ The banana and almond milk make this smoothie have a very light & creamy texture that is just as delicious (and evil!) as that smoothie you love from the cafe – Just minus all those extra calories! (So of course you love me now, right!?) lol 😉
1 frozen banana, cut into pieces
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure maple syrup
Cinnamon stick, for garnish
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth, and add more almond milk if necessary.
Pour into a tall glass, add the cinnamon stick for garnish and attractiveness 😉 & drink up!
Hey Everybody! I was board of my “normal” kind-of oatmeal i was eating every morning, so i created a scrumptious new version that is a cinch to throw together! It’s intensely rich and creamy, so it tastes like a real treat!
1/2 cup quick Oats
1/3 cup Whole Milk, Almond or Coconut Milk
1/4 cup Yogurt (plain, or flavored)
2 1/2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
Egg Nog, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Pumpkin Pie spice
1 small Carrot (shredded)
Jam, Preserves, fresh or dried Fruit
Coconut, Chocolate, Almonds, Pecans, Walnuts, etc.
Maple Syrup, Sugar, Stevia or Honey (sweeten to taste- if needed)
Directions: Beat together all the dairy ingredients, then once you get it to a smooth texture, add your oats, and any other ingredients you would like incorporated, scoop into a dish, cover, and let refrigerate at least 5 hours before devouring! 🙂
Tips & Extra’s :
I perfer to use quick oats as apposed to whole/rolled oats, but since that’s just MY preference, you can use whatever you like!
I make this at night before i head to bed so that first thing in the morning i can just grab it out of the fridge on my way out the door to work!
This is a really creamy and dense oatmeal, so don’t think you’ve made it wrong if it appears to have the texture of that similar to a big gluey mess! lol
I find it easier to store this recipe in Mason canning jars, but then again….that might just be me! 🙂
