Oat-Standing Recovery

1 MIN READ • 14th August 2022
Vicky Warrell by Vicky Warrell

Another alternative source of calcium, almond milk is low in calories, with one cup providing half of your daily recommended intake of vitamin E, an antioxidant which boosts heart function. This shake is packed with the essentials – the banana offers a wealth of potassium, while the oats work hard to lower blood pressure levels and the flax seeds and date go a long way in reaching your recommended daily fibre intake.

  • Ingredients

    3/4 cup of almond milk

  • 2 tablespoons of almond butter

  • 1/4 cup of raw cashews (soaked overnight)

  • 1 medium banana (cut into chunks and frozen)

  • 2 tablespoons of whole oats

  • 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed

  • 1 pitted dried date

  • A sprinkle of cinnamon

Process until smooth. Top with a sprinkle of coconut to serve.
