Spicy Plum Smoothie (with hidden greens)

Another Smoothie Masterpiece from my blogging buddy Katherine Natalie (a.k.a. the Queen of Smoothies) over at GreenThickies………

Spicy Plum Smoothie

*2 Cups Non Dairy Milk (oat, rice, soya, almond, hemp, coconut drink or raw nut or seed milk)

*8 Plums (I used very small plums with bright red flesh)
*1 Banana
*1 Cup Spinach, tightly packed or 2 cups loosely packed. (Or any other mild greens)

*½ Cup Dates (or any other dried fruit which can also be pre-soaked for a smoother blend)

*1 Cup link Oats Or one cup of Quinoa
*½ teaspoon Vanilla
*1 teaspoon Ginger (fresh or ground)
*¼ teaspoon of Cayenne pepper (to taste or omit completely)

 

Blend the ingredients in the order listed. Add more water if required to thin it out. Substitute any of the ingredients for whatever you already have. If your smoothie is too warm, you can cool it down in the fridge. NOTE: The calories shown are for half of the ingredients listed as this smoothie serves 2. If you want less calories add less oats.
