When You're In a Rush, Smoothies for Breakfast
Sometimes I have a busy day planned and when I do I throw together a smoothie with lots of body to hold me until lunch. There is such an extensive variety of fruits and vegetables for you to use in your smoothies. I usually buy frozen fruit chunks to keep in the refrigerator and I also freeze my overripe bananas for the same purpose. Adding gluten free thick cut oats to my smoothies give them more body and a stick to your ribs feeling until lunch.
Today's smoothie was an apple and raisin flavored one to which I added some fresh kale leaves from the garden to give it some "green power".
Apple and Raisin Smoothie with Kale
1 1/2 ounces thick cut gluten free oats
2 tablespoons of raisins
1 apple, cored and cut into chunks
1 frozen banana
3 large kale leaves, washed and torn into pieces
1 generous cup of almond milk
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
