The Elvis and the Omega Smoothie

There is nothing better to me than a hearty, vitamin-rich smoothie that I can run out the door with. When I first got my Blendtec, I was blending everything. Seriously, I didn’t have the same smoothie twice for over 3 weeks. Then, I stumbled upon this beauty. I don’t really know where the inspiration came from, but I knew what I had to do. By blending oats with my favorites (peanut butter, banana, and flax seeds), I created an incredibly filling smoothie that held me over until the early afternoon, tasted fantastic, and had Omegas, of which I’m constantly trying to increase my intake. Needless to say, I have this smoothie at least once a week, sometimes more.

Ingredients on table

Smoothie Ingredients

In your Blendtec, combine the following:

8 oz (1 cup) almond milk
1 organic banana
1 heaping tbsp organic peanut Butter
2 tbsp flax seeds or 1 tbsp chia seeds
¼ c organic quick oats
1-2 c ice to taste

Add all ingredients to jar in order listed and secure lid. Select “Smoothie.” Blend until smooth enough to go through a straw. Enjoy!

    I’m a big juicer, but with a new Blendtec, I’ve been trying to get used to the texture of smoothies…it’s been slow going. But, this sounds fantastic! I can’t wait ’til morning (it’s 9PM) to try it!
