Cookies for Breakfast? How about an Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie…

Lately, I’ve been trying to drink at least one smoothie a day and have been doing some experimenting…it has been fun . Sunday morning I had this smoothie for breakfast while sitting on my porch soaking in the sun as the Earth turned her way into the new dawning of a new day. And…as an aside; maybe you caught a little of my poetry coming out…haha…I’m doing Shakespeare in the Park at my Community theater…hey…a call out to community theater…support your local community theater!!

Anyway, on Sunday, it was warm and I was thinking of oatmeal but didn’t want the heat in the kitchen so decided to try this out instead…an oatmeal cookie in a glass! Yum! It was enough to keep me satisfied until lunch time about 4 hours later…

Oh, yes…I wanted to give a tip for, pardon the pun, smooth smoothies; haha. I am discovering that the trick to transforming all sorts of fruits and veggies into a creamy smoothiness is in the banana…in the banana? Yes…in the banana. The key ingredient base for these magical morning (or afternoon or evening) meals or snacks is frozen bananas. They make all the difference in the world to your smoothie as opposed to using a fresh banana…All I do, is peel the bananas, break them in half and put them in a ziplock bag. Place them in the freezer for at least an overnight and you are ready to start them off in your blender with a few more ingredients and tranformation will ensue.

And now…back to the…

Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie

  • 1 C plant milk
  • 1/4 c oats
  • 1 lg frozen banana
  • 2 T raisins
  • 1 date
  • 2 T walnuts
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • dash of vanilla
  • dash of nutmeg

Place all ingredients into a high powered blender and spin to a smooth and creamy consistency. Pour into a tall glass, grate a bit of nutmeg on top for garnish and enjoy!

Peace, love and light
