  • 1 cup kale or spinach
  • 1 cup milk of choice dairy, almond, soy
  • 1/2 to 1 frozen banana
  • sweetener to taste with a very ripe banana I find no sweetener necessary
  • 1/3 cup oats I used Coach's Oats, old fashioned rolled oats are great too


  1. Make a simple green smoothie by blending kale, milk and banana in a high powered blender until smooth. Add sweetener like dates, maple syrup, honey if necessary.
  2. Combine the smoothie with the oats, cover and soak overnight in the fridge.
  3. If necessary, add a little more milk for serving in the morning. Top with sliced bananas, seeds, nuts etc.
