Valentine's GF Vegan Smoothies: Creamy Spiced Banana N' Oat and Creamy Mango N' Oat

Hello Lovelies!
Today we are celebrating Valentine's Day, with Smoothies that say I looooooooove you AND I want you to stay healthy so you can be around for a looooong time. 
Romantic and caring in one sip of yumminess. I say, DO IT!!!!!!!!
I know you saw Oats in the title and may have gone, whoa la! 
Fear not, for I used gluten-free oats and was quite happy. I will say that some people have a reaction to the proteins in oats even when they are GF, I personally indulge very rarely as I do not want to set any itchy rashes off, which oats that were not GF have done to me in the past. I have no problem with Mum's GF Oats and  I can tell when I am a bit more sensitive, digestion-wise on a given day. That's when I omit them and use Maca powder or I cook the oats and use those instead. Explore and do what works best.


Creamy Spiced Banana N' Oat Smoothie
1/2 Ripe Organic Banana
2 Tbsp GF Mum's Quick Cooking Oat Flakes or use 1 Tbsp Maca Powder
1 Tbsp Unsweetened Almond Butter
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein of choice
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Pie Spice mix
1 Tbsp Grade B Maple Syrup
1 Cup Unsweetened Almond milk 

-Place all in blender and blend for 30 seconds until smooth, add a bit of extra almond milk if too thick and serve immediately over ice.


I know there are some of you who need an alternative to bananas as not everyone can eat them, mangoes say love to me, so I am using them in this slight variation. 
Creamy Mango N' Oat Smoothie
1 Cup Mango chunks
1 Cup Unsweetened Almond milk
1 Tbsp Organic cold-pressed Coconut oil
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1Tbsp Unsweetened Almond butter
2 Tbsp Mum's GF Quick Cooking Oat Flakes or 1 Tbsp Maca Powder
1 Scoop Vanilla protein of choice

-All ingredients in blender, whizz for 30 seconds, serve immediately over ice.
Delicious and filling vegan bliss. Sigh...
Enjoy & spread the healthy love this Valentine's morning for you and your cutie patootie!
