Step by Step Instructions:
This Skinny Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie makes for the perfect snack. Here’s what you’ll need: Unsweetened Almond Milk, Old-fashioned Oats, Ground Ginger, Cinnamon, Vanilla Bean Paste (or Vanilla Extract), Fresh Nutmeg, Honey, Salt, and 1 frozen Banana.
Begin by pouring 1/4 cup of old-fashioned oats in your blender.
Pulse the oats in the blender until they are finely ground as you can see in the photo above.
Add the frozen banana to the blender. (I broke mine up into 3 pieces before adding it.)
Then add 1 cup of Almond Milk.
Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey, whichever you prefer. I went with about 1 tablespoon, which worked great.
Finally it’s time to add the spices to really make it taste like oatmeal cookies by adding in 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger, a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg (or you can use ground nutmeg from the store), and a pinch of salt.
Then blend at high speed until the mixture is completely smooth. That’s it! You’re all done. Serve up this delicious smoothie immediately and enjoy! I topped mine with a touch of cinnamon and some oats, so garnish as you like. Happy smoothie-ing!
