STRAWBERRY BANANA OATMEAL PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

Because smoothies are all the rage in my house right now. What’s for breakfast? SMOOTHIES.  What kind of smoothies? Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Protein Smoothie. That’s a mouthful of words, isn’t it?

The smoothies that I bring into this world rarely contain dairy. Milk is my stomach’s arch nemesis. They’ve duked it out many times, with milk often winning the battle. If I utilize the Lactaid super power, I’m usually okay with milk and am able to destroy it’s evil, destructive digestive destroyer lactose.

But I don’t like nasty battles, so I play it safe and make non-dairy smoothies.

If milk is your arch nemesis too, then this smoothie is your new best friend. I made this Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Protein Smoothie with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Vanilla Almond Milk with a hint of honey. No lactose. Nada. None. Zilch.

  • 1 scoop plant based vanilla protein powder
