This smoothie is SO creamy with no “green” flavor. Basically, it tastes and feels like a lightened up peanut butter or nut butter banana shake. Since there is no veggie flavor profile here, and the spinach only seems to “sweeten the deal”, this is a perfect breakfast or after-school snack to give your kids for St. Patrick’s Day.

I’ve heard of people adding oats to their smoothies but I’d never tried it … yes, I most likely have been living with my head buried in the sand on this one. I guess I thought maybe the oats would make the smoothie too grainy or too thick. But I must be completely honest in telling you that I’ve been a fool. A fool, I tell you. I love the gluten-free oats in there. There’s a completion to the texture that just seems right. So, if you’ve been blind to this inclusion in your smoothies, here’s a little nudge from me. Just do it!

This recipe easily will make two servings, but I devoured the entire 12 ounces by myself for breakfast, and felt satisfied all morning long. There’s a good balance of carbs to protein, with no added sugars or sugar substitutes (which I’m highly opposed to – but more on that later), so there’s no high then low sugar spike and drop. Which also can translate to no crazy, wild kids after they enjoy this treat. And we all approve of that, right?

Single or multiple allergies in your home, or perhaps none at all (my hubby is a free-range eater, though I’m slowly converting his preferences)? This drink is perfect for diets free of gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, peanuts (and/or tree nuts with alterations to the ingredients), and for those who are vegan or vegetarian. So what’s not to love?
