Recipe: Banana Oat Smoothie

This morning I met my friend and fellow Runnin’ Fool Alexis for a mid-week run through the neighborhoods.  We’ve had some spotty fall weather in Tulsa but today’s high is expected to be in the low 90s.  Alexis is thrilled.  I’m ready for fall.

Morning in Tulsa

We had a great run around the country club and Alexis filled me in on a lot of the history of my new town (more on that later) and we talked about the coming fall.  I can’t wait for oversized sweaters, boots, pumpkin everything and warm breakfasts.  But today we are having our last day in the 90s and I thought I should have a farewell to summer breakfast – something frothy and cold.  Get your blenders out!

Banana Oat Smoothie

Throw the following into a blender

  • One banana (frozen makes thicker smoothie)
  • 2 Tbsps old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • handful of spinach
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • Ice
  • Optional: 1/2 to 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder

 

It was the perfect cold end to a great end of summer run!  Now, I’m ready for fall 🙂
