Protein Power Banana Oat Smoothie

This smoothie is amazing – it packs a full punch of energy from the fruit and protein from the the tahini, oats and chia – which also adds healthy fats making it a complete meal.

1c Isola Bio Hazelnut Rice milk (or water, or whatever milk you like)
1 tablespoon chia
4 or 5  frozen cherries
1 frozen banana
1 tablespoon tahini
2.5 tablespoons rolled oats

Blend the above ingredients in a blender, put the milk/water in first

The frozen fruit gives it an thick ice cream like texture. The riper the bananas were when they were frozen, the sweeter the smoothie.

With the nut milk as above, 5 cherries, and a med banana, this smoothie has 460 calories, 10g Protein, 13g Fibre, and 27g sugar.  I love this right after a run when I need the carbs, sugars and proteins. If you are watching calories and/or sugar, use water instead of nut milk and it becomes 300 calories, 8g Protein, 11g Fibre, and 16g sugar.
