- Keep in mind this smoothie has enough calories to constitute a meal.
- I highly recommend using frozen bananas not fresh ones as they yield a better texture.
- Use roasted nuts for this recipe, peanut butter is good but I find fresh roasted nuts work best.
- For best results use bananas that are naturally sweet (with the skin almost black) trust me to really enhances the taste and natural sweetness.
- You don't have to add sweetener, but I like to add few dates or sometimes use maple syrup (a small amount is enough).
- Oats are naturally gluten free however, if you are sensitive to trace/cross contamination then use certified gluten free oats.
- Drink your smoothie on the same day and don't leave it to stand overnight.
