  • 1/2 cup frozen banana slices (from about 1 small)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats (or instant oats)
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter

Add-ins (optional):

  • 1/2 cup cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach (lightly packed)
  • 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon Brewer's yeast

Notes

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
Add Brewer's yeast if desired for additional potential milk boosting benefits.
Add a scoop of protein powder if desired to add more protein.
Dairy-free: Use non-dairy yogurt.
Gluten-free: Use GF certified rolled oats.
Nut-free: Omit the almond butter.
Flavors to try:
  • Strawberry Cauliflower: Add 1/2 cup raw cauliflower florets to the main recipe.
  • Strawberry Cocoa: Add 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder to the recipe. (Add 1 tablespoon maple syrup if it tastes at all bitter)
  • Strawberry Spinach: Add 1 cup lightly packed baby spinach to the recipe.
  • Berry Sweet Potato: Trade in blueberries or raspberries for the strawberries and add 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato.
  • Mango Kale: Trade in mango for the strawberries and use 1/2 cup frozen kale.
  • Strawberry Chocolate Peanut Butter: Add 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder and trade in peanut butter for the almond butter.
