There isn’t always time to make a bowl of oatmeal but you can still get all the clean protein, fibre and healthy energy from oats in this delicious vanilla spice smoothie. The hemp seeds and almond butter add even more protein as well as healthy fats – more fuel for good, long-lasting energy. I’m usually a green smoothie girl but I have to say I’m absolutely loving the creaminess and flavour of this delicious breakfast smoothie. The healthy answer to your busy morning.

Tips & Nutrition
I keep ripe bananas peeled and sliced in the freezer in individual containers making morning smoothies easy and quick to make.
You can add a scoop of protein powder to up the protein in this smoothie even more if you like.
Feel free to sub in chia or flax seeds and make it nut free by using sunflower seed butter instead of almond butter.
Add all ingredients in the order they are listed into a high-speed blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Serve immediately.
