  • 1 apple (shredded)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/4th teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup yogurt (dairy-free if you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 3/4th cup soy or almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4th cup raisins or frozen blueberries (optional)

Shred the apple. Mix all the ingredients together and store overnight. In the morning heat (or eat cold) and add your favorite toppings—blueberries, banana, coconut shreds, or flaxseed.

Hearty Green Smoothie

Hearty Green Smoothie

2 tablespoons flaxseed

2 tablespoons goji berries

4 dates

1 banana

1/4th of an avocado

2 cups leafy greens

1 cup frozen fruit (I recommend blueberries or strawberries)

3/4th cup soy or almond milk

3/4th cup water

Blend together. My stepdad freezes his greens so they last longer. Regular greens work too.

  1. Cook the oats with 1 cup water.
