Cheap Smoothies 2: Sweet Almond Surprise (Frugal Full Meal Green Smoothie)
1 & 1/3 cup Rolled Oats
4 tablespoons Flaxseeds (Use Ground Flaxseeds if you don’t have a powerful blender or grind your own in a coffee grinder to save more money) or use ground or whole almonds if you can find them at a good price.
5oz Frozen Spinach ((140 grams (About 3 cubes) or about 1 cup of fresh spinach)OR if you run out of fresh greens, add 2 scoops of Amazing Green Powder for an extra healthy green boost.
3 small Bananas ((Frozen bananas will keep the smoothie cool. ))
1 teaspoon Almond Extract
2 & 1/2 cups Water
Blend the ingredients in the order listed.
If you are making a green smoothie blend the greens and liquid first and then blend the rest of the ingredients. This creates more space in your blender.
Add more water if required to thin it out.
Substitute any of the ingredients for whatever you already have.
If your smoothie is too warm, you can cool it down in the fridge or freeze some of your ingredients before blending.
You can also replace half of the liquids with ice. Add the ice at the end. It is better to add frozen ingredients at the end to cool the smoothie down.
This smoothie serves 2 but if you have an active job, do work outs or have higher calorie requirements you may need to drink both servings.
