It's a new year and I find myself prepping bright and fresh meals for clients who are seeking to focus in on their nutrition goals. I love supporting these intentions! In fact, prepping the tasty blueberry smoothies pictured here this week inspired me to pop in and share a smoothie recipe of my own for all of you doing your weekend meal prep. If you're looking for a nutritious breakfast option that's high in protein but easy to take on the road, this one is just for you. Enjoy!
Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie
Makes 1 smoothie
2 T quick oats
1 T flax seed
½ c organic milk, organic runny yogurt, or milk substitute
1 frozen banana
1 T natural peanut butter
⅛ t maple extract (or ¼ t vanilla extract)

The night before you prepare your smoothie, soak the oats and flax in milk. Leave this in a cup in the refrigerator. On the morning of, combine soaked oats, plus remaining ingredients in a blender and blend on high until smooth.
