This morning I woke up craving a refreshing and filling smoothie.  But, oh no!  Out of protein powder… What is a healthy foodie to do?!

My protein powder is what gives my smoothies their thick texture so I had to think quick for a substitution… So, I’m thinking thick and then it comes to me: almond butter and oats!
The result was something entirely natural and much more delicious!  I may be obsessed with this new creation (even though I will warn you that it sounds… different).  Here we go…
  • 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 cup mixed frozen berries, unsweetened
  • 2 tbsp almond butter, unsalted
  • ¼ cup old fashion oats (helps with thickness)
Puree ingredients in blender and serve immediately.
