Protein Smoothie


  • ¼ Cup rolled oats
  • 1 Cup almond milk
  • 3 Tablespoons almond or peanut butter
  • 1 banana
  • 1 Cup baby spinach leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon agave syrup
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon



  1. Pulse the oats a few times in your blender so they grind up; then add the other ingredients and puree until smooth.
  2. Let the smoothie sit for about 3 to 5 minutes before drinking so the ground oats aren’t grainy.


Smoothie Bowl Option:

In a bowl, top smoothie with ¼ Cup granola, 1 Tablespoon shredded coconut, 1 Tablespoon blueberries, and 1 Tablespoon cacao nibs as a garnish.
