This is a seriously delicious smoothie. The banana, oats and almond milk make it super thick and creamy, while the berries give it a beautiful colour and a sweet, fruity flavour. The spinach gives you a good dose of revitalising greens so that you’ll be glowing from the inside out all day!
I also add hemp protein powder for a good, easily digested protein boost and chia seeds to up my fibre, protein and Omega 3 intake. Both the hemp and the chia blend really well into the smoothie so you won’t taste either and together they’ll really help to boost your energy.
All these ingredients together really do keep you full, satisfied and energised all morning as they give you so much fibre, plant protein and an amazing array of health boosting vitamins and minerals. If you feel like you need a crunch though, add a little less milk and then pour the smoothie into a bowl and top it with your favourite granola, nuts, seeds, raisins, cacao nibs, fruit etc. for a delicious smoothie bowl!
