Green, raw, oat, breakfast smoothie
3 to 4 bananas
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup carrots, chopped
2 cups apple juice (heat if any of the ingredients are frozen)
1 bunch greens
(green kale, spinach, or red dandelion work best; collard and chard are not as bright green)
1. In a 2 quart blender (Vita-Mix, Ktech or other high power blender with 2 quart container is best), add bananas, oats, carrots, and apple juice. Add water to the 6 or 7 cup mark and blend until everything is smooth.
2. The greens are bulky but will fit when blended in, if blended in steps, a little at a time. So, fill the remainder of the blender space with as much greens as will fit without packing the blender too tight, blend until smooth.
3. Add more greens, blend, and repeat, until the whole bunch of greens is used or the level of the smoothie has reached the top.
Enjoy and store left overs in the freezer (to preserve the flavor) in 1 portion sized containers. I especially like these after exercising in the morning, half defrosted, cold and slushy to cool me off.
