To make a green smoothie you need kale or spinach, both frozen and fresh fruit and a liquid of your choice (juice, plant base milk, or water). Some recipes have a few tablespoons of nut butter to make the smoothie creamier and to add protein.

Power your Breakfast with Oats
A Vegan Oatmeal Primer:
Oatmeal comes in a variety of forms; making it easy to find one that fits your taste and lifestyle. Cooking oatmeal can be as simple as opening an instant oatmeal package, popping the contents into a microwave-safe bowl, and pushing a button.
When you’re feeling a bit more motivated, a little effort can provide you with oatmeal that’s much more delicious and definitely more nutritious! Steel cut oats and old fashioned rolled oats are the way to go – both are available in gluten-free versions too.
You can do Steel Cut Oats in the Crockpot overnight and have them waiting for you in the morning.
These oats vary only slightly when it comes to their nutritional make-up. Because steel cut oats are less processed than old fashioned rolled oats, they digest a little slower – beneficial when you want to stabilize your blood sugar levels. Steel cut oats have a heartier flavor while old fashioned rolled oats can be compared to a more traditional tasting oat. With that said, any kind of whole grain oatmeal is an excellent choice for supporting your health at breakfast.
Top your oatmeal with fruit and nuts to make it even more complete. Here’s our Dressed Up Old Fashioned Oats recipe to show you how.
