This Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie satisfies breakfast AND sweets cravings alike!
I LOVE a good smoothie, especially on busy days when I can make it and take it with me in less than 5 minutes.
This one combines oats, dates and warming cinnamon spice for a delicious sip!
I generally enjoy smoothies for breakfast but lately have been making them my afternoon snack too.
Enjoying smoothies as a snack:
When I crave something sweet this smoothie completely satisfies my sweet-snack cravings AND fills me up until the next meal!
I love the combination of oats, cinnamon and almond butter for some serious cookie flavour.
What delicious and healthy ingredients are in this Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie?
Almond Milk: A great neutral flavour for this smoothie but you can also substitute regular milk or another plant-based milk (oat milk would work great!)
Vanilla Protein Powder: I especially like to use Botanica Health’s plant-based protein powder if I’m enjoying this smoothie post-workout and to keep me full for a couple of hours.
Dates: Are a great source of antioxidants and fibre.
Almond Butter: Adds a bit of protein and healthy fats to this smoothie.
Cinnamon: Brings all the flavours together.
Maple Syrup: Adds a little sweetness and is a great natural sweetener.
Rolled Oats: Makes this smoothie hearty and enhances the oatmeal cookie flavour.
