Put the following in your high speed blender (or blend in order in a regular blender):
*1 C. Filtered Water
*2 peeled Oranges (seedless or remove the seeds)
*1 C. frozen Blueberries
*1 C. Oatmeal (uncooked- soaked over night is good, if possible to remember to do that)
*2 T. Chia Seed or Flax Seed (or Chia Seed Gel that you can make yourself)
*3-6 Pitted Dates
*Handful of Romaine Lettuce
Whirl up until totally smoothie. Mmmmm. I think it is good to chew this smoothie a little instead of just bolting it down because it is pretty substantial and chewing ensures a better digestion process. I threw in the dates because the combo reminds me of a lovely muffin recipe I once had... you can omit them if you find this too sweet.
I don't have the exact nutritional breakdown but I'm guessing that this might be 300+ calories and contain around 6-8g of fat. Dairy-free, no refined sugars, Wheat-free.
