Recipe Post- Healthier Cake Batter Smoothie (Vegan)

There are loads of cake batter smoothie recipes. This is just my version- the beauty of smoothies is you can have fun mixing and matching ingredients. I'm a bit smoothie obsessed at the moment so be prepared for lots of smoothie recipes!!! I've purchased a screw top beaker so I can mix up a smoothie to take to work :-)

Cake Batter Smoothie
Makes 1 smoothie

Ingredients

2 tbsp Porridge oats
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 small frozen banana *
1 handful baby spinach
200 ml/1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp nut butter (use either peanut, cashew, sunflower or almond)
1 scoop protein power (optional)
1 tsp Xanthan gum (optional but gives it a thicker consistency like ice cream. Most supermarkets do it in the baking section)

Method

1. Put everything into a blender and blend until everything has combined
2. Serve either in a glass or in a bowl with a spoon and if you like put some sprinkles on top!

* I always have frozen bananas in the freezer. Just cut them into chunks and pace them into a freezer bag or box. Great to always have some on hand for smoothies or vegan ice cream!
