strawberry coconut super smoothie
If you don't have the time (or the foresight) to soak the oats the night before, you can grind the oats into a fine powder before blending them into the smoothie. Use gluten free oats if necessary for a totally gluten free smoothie. This recipe calls for lite coconut milk, but feel free to use full fat for a more decadent smoothie. I like drink about a third of this smoothie immediately and pour the rest back into the 500ml jar the oats were soaking in and save that portion for after my workout.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup lite coconut milk
- 1 banana preferably frozen
- 4-6 strawberries fresh or frozen (about 1/2 cup chopped)
- 1 Tbsp hemp seeds
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup water
Place oats, almond milk, and coconut milk in a jar with a lid and give it a stir or a shake to mix up. Place in the fridge overnight or at least for a couple of hours.
When you're ready to make the smoothie place the soaked oats into the jar of a blender along with the frozen banana, strawberries, and hemp seeds.
Add 1/4 cup of cold water, place the lid on the blender, and blend. You may need to add up to another 1/4 cup of water if the smoothie is very thick.
Blend until smooth, and enjoy!
