Foodie Friday: Oatmeal Cookie Protein Smoothie {Vegan}

Oatmeal Cookie Protein Smoothie {Vegan}Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Montana from Pretty Lil’ Mudder, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Cassandra from Powered by BLING to create awesome healthy recipes each week!  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

This week we are linking up to share yummilicious oatmeal recipes.  I used to love enjoying a piping hot bowl of oatmeal everyday for breakfast, constantly changing up the flavors with different combinations of ingredients like berries, nuts and such.  

Lately though, I have been enjoying my oatmeal a different way- in a cold and refreshing smoothie.  I know what you’re thinking and I know it sounds weird but this is just one of those things you can’t knock until you try it.  

Oatmeal just thickens the smoothie which helps to fill you up and keep your tummy full and happy.  Plus if you add in protein powder and almond butter like I did with this one, it will keep you feeling full even longer- it also doesn’t hurt that it tastes just like a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie 😉 Oatmeal Cookie Protein Smoothie {Vegan}oatmealsmoothie3

– 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
– 1/2 cup gluten free oats
– 1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder (I used Vega)
– 1 tbsp raw almond butter
– 1 tbsp vegan chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)

Blend and top with more chocolate chips :)

This sounds wonderful in every way! :D! I'm definitely making this! (May sub in my cookies & cream protein powder.) I've never actually thrown chocolate chips into a blender before, and what's a new year without trying it new things! :P

This is exactly how I like my oatmeal. I cannot sit down and eat a bowl of it, but in a smoothie, I feel like I'm getting all the benefits. Have to try this one!
