A super healthy, super filling, super tasty smoothie, ideal for breakfast or a snack. Oats, tahini, bananas and almond milk give it great nutritional qualities, while a little honey and cocoa powder take it up a notch and give it some treat-like qualities!

I was asked by a Greek magazine called Shape to create a recipe for a piece they were doing on my blog. Well, with a name like Shape, I couldn’t go all double-chocolate-salted-caramel-oreo-cheesecake-brownies on them. Plus, it’s Lent here in Greece, so I wanted to do something that could be enjoyed by everyone even if they are fasting. This smoothie is almost vegan (switch the honey for a vegan friendly alternative), very healthy, and filled with energy-giving ingredients. It’s not a diet smoothie, but it is good for you. And it will satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you full till lunchtime or dinner. Which means you won’t need those chocolate biscuits. Which maybe means it is a diet smoothie?

Moving on. Oats. I hate raw oats. I can’t believe people actually put them in a bowl, throw milk over them and eat them. They are like little bits of cardboard. No, I cook my oats in porridge or granola. Or I did, that is, before I tried them in a smoothie! Creamy, thick and luscious. Good stuff. I take it back about how awful they are. Unless you’re going to make me put them in a bowl with milk…

Ingredients

8 Tbs oats, quick cooking (not instant)

2 bananas, medium sized, chopped

4 Tbs tahini

2 Tbs honey

1 Tbs cocoa powder (not hot chocolate powder)

2 cups almond milk, cold

Step 1

Add oats, bananas, tahini, honey, cocoa powder and almond milk to a blender, and blend till smooth. If you want you can use frozen bananas.

Step 2

Serve in jam jars to be trendy and practical at the same time (you can pop the lid on and store any leftovers in the fridge for up to a couple of days).
