We’ve all slept in, 30 minutes past the alarm clock, incredibly late for that important meeting. We’ve all had that tiring late night and wished the next morning began after 20 hours. That morning when we wished breakfast made itself. That draining morning workout. Well, this breakfast oatmeal smoothie is for all those times.
The Ultimate Breakfast Oatmeal Smoothie packs a wallop, and is THE way to energise a groggy and tired you, what with Nutella, peanut butter, bananas, dates, flax seeds, oats and milk. And you can make it in under five minutes!
Since the ingredients have sugar and salt in them, we’re not going to add any more. Plus, you can customise it to make it less sugary (use one banana and use only a couple of stoned dates), gluten free (with gluten-free oats) or vegan (with almond milk). Peanut allergy? No problem, don’t add peanut butter. Don’t like dates? No problem, don’t add them. It will still remain the ULTIMATE oatmeal smoothie and you’ll STILL be left supercharged!
What a way to kickstart your day! And as a bonus, it’s super delicious. O happy day!
