Since starting the vegan lifestyle, I have tried putting things into my body that is considered to be a little bit healthier. This has included various types of snacks and foods. My fridge has never been as stocked with fresh foods as it is now. It comes with the territory, I guess. For snacking purposes, I have mixed a variety of nuts and dried fruit as a trail mix. Truth be told, I probably should have used that as an actual trail mix today whilst doing fieldwork… Live and learn.
Well, on to the recipe for today. Today’s recipe is something simple. A vegan smoothie, made with soy milk. The soy milk in this recipe can be substituted with almond or coconut milk (a light variant, the normal variant is a little bit too rich for my liking, but you might enjoy it). The great thing about fruit smoothies is that you can basically add any fruit to it and it is bound to be delicious. Just be careful of banana and papaya. Both of these fruits have very overpowering flavors, which can camouflage the taste of everything else in your concoction. Personally, I am personally not a big fan of papaya, watermelon or mango in a smoothie, but other than that, bring on the fruit! The recipe below makes one serving.
2 Small bananas (or one large one)
1 Small apple
1 Half of a pineapple
3 Tablespoons rolled oats
150 ml Soy Milk
2 Teaspoons Maple syrup
1) Prepare all the fruit (cut the strawberries in halves, dice the apple, peel the pineapple and cut the peeled bananas into chunks of approximately 3 cm each).
2) Add all the pieces of fruit to a blender.
3) Add the rolled oats and the maple syrup to the blender.
4) Add the milk and blend until the mixture is the desired texture.
5) Add more milk if consistency is to thick.
5) Enjoy as breakfast or as a midday snack.
