Cinnamon Oatmeal Protein Smoothie. Vegan. Gluten Free.

Oatmeal Date Protein Smoothie.
Oatmeal Date Protein Smoothie.

Just home from a short and easy 4 miler run at the gym.  This run helped to calm some nerves that have been stirring this week.  Taper craziness is a real thing!

I wanted to share this recipe early with you all before I head out for a day of meetings.  Last night by dinnertime,  I wasn’t really hungry.  I had been grazing pretty much most of my day.  I wanted carbs without a lot of fiber.  Building up glycogen stores. Repairing muscles.  I wanted a small smoothie that provided a protein punch and this hit the mark.  Reminded me of a cinnamon oatmeal cookie.  Totally kid-approved as well. Would make a great kid’s on-the-go breakfast, snack or even dessert.


1 cup of Silk cashew milk or whatever nut milk you prefer- unsweetened
3/4 of a scoop of VegaOne vanilla protein powder
1 Medjool date, pitted
1/2 of a banana, ripe
3 tablespoons of Bob’s Redmill GF rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
6 ice cubes


Place all of your ingredients into your Vitamix or high powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  Pour into your glass and enjoy!
