basil seeds, crushed almond, & oats for toppingsoptional
Dry roast the oats in a pan for 1-2 minutes and once cooled down transfer to a blending jar along with banana, almonds, cinnamon, and water. Blend until creamy and smooth. If the smoothie is a little thick for you add a little more water and blend again.
Pour into the serving glass and serve immediately. Enjoy plain or garnish as you desired.
Oats: I prefer to use dry roasted oats in my smoothies. I used to dry roast the oats until lightly roasted. Then once cooled down transfer to an airtight jar and use as needed. However, it could be replaced with raw oats as well.
Banana: For extra creaminess, use frozen bananas. Chop the banana and freeze them in a Ziploc. Use as needed.
Sweetener: If the smoothie isn’t sweet enough for you, you can add in 1-2 pitted dates or a splash of honey.
Water: Water can be replaced with any plant-based or dairy milk.
Almonds: Almonds can be replaced with almond powder or almond butter.
Variations: For a variation, cocoa powder and peanut butter could be used.
