1/3 cup whole oats to 2/3 cup water (you are only going to use half of the finished oatmeal)
1 1/4 cups almond mylk
2 dates (pitted)
1 teaspoon true cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 orange (peeled)
1 1/2 teaspoon orange zest (add more if you like)
3 ice cubes
*Add a handful of spinach, kale or parsley to this to increase nutrient density!
Cook the oatmeal with the lid off, once it's done allow the oatmeal to cool.
Add half of your cooled, cooked oatmeal to your smoothie and the rest of the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
Serves 2 or 1 big portion.
*You could add less oatmeal or more liquid to thin it out or you could add all of the cooked oatmeal for a thicker shake.
Cook Outside the Box
You could try using chia gel instead of oats, to have a gluten free version.
Add some protein powder and some type of fresh leafy green to give it more protein and nutrients.
