Summer Drink: Oat Milk Smoothie

Adult life kind of sucks (that's a mild exaggeration). The truth is the transition from being an irresponsible undergrad, to joining the ranks of the majority and plugging away at a 9-5, is tough. Sleeping in till 9AM becomes a point of celebration, eating Target frozen pizza is a surprise treat and speeding down the freeway on a Friday at 5PM brings you to tears. It's the small things. 

Not to be the bearer of doom and gloom, but get ready for two things in particular to suffer when it comes to quality: 1) food and 2) sleep (say goodbye to hibernating or pulling all-nighters!). To help you adjust a little to your new way of life on the go, we've suggested a delicious, healthy and quick meal option. This oat milk smoothie recipe by Golubka gives you everything you need in a cool and convenient glass. Try it out and let us know what you think! 

Late Summer Oat Milk Smoothie
Oat milk
1 cup oat groats - preferably raw
3 cups purified water, plus some water for soaking the groats

Cover oat groats with purified water and leave to soak overnight. Drain and rinse. In a high-speed blender, combine the groats with 3 cups of water until very smooth. You should end up with a drinkable yogurt kind of consistency. Keep refrigerated. Add to smoothies or top with fruit for breakfast.

Oat Milk Smoothie Layer
1 cup oat milk
1/2 cup ice cubes
1 tablespoon raw honey
dash of cinnamon

Combine all the ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.

Fig and Grape Smoothie
1 cup oat milk
2 cups ice cubes
4 cups grapes - your favourite kind
1 cup ripe figs
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 vanilla bean - optional
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth. Pour to fill 2/3 of a glass. Top with the oat milk layer, pouring carefully. Enjoy!
