Smoothies are Better with Better Than Milk

Name a more amazing plant-powered pick-me-up than the smoothie. We’ll wait.

Refreshing, yet filling, with a boost of natural energy, and it’s packed with healthy goodness?! What more could you possibly ask for in a snack?

Perhaps you’re a smoothie purist who loves the classic fruit and milk combo. Or maybe you’re all about the protein, adding in chia seeds, almond butter, or smoothie powder as you please. But the one thing every smoothie needs is a tasty and nutritious liquid base, and here’s why Better Than Milk works like a dream in any blended treat!

From brownies to açaí bowls, Better Than Milk makes a tasty addition to recipes of all kinds—just add it in like any other type of milk! It’s also shelf-stable before opening, so you can keep it on hand without taking up too much space in the fridge.

Made from wholesome and eco-friendly ingredients, Better Than Milk is a win-win for the body and the planet! We work with organic, sustainable farms to ensure you’re getting the highest quality oats, rice, almonds, and hazelnuts with the lowest environmental impact.

5) Earth Lovin’ Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients

  • Green Smoothie Base:
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 2 dates, pitted
  • 1 serving tropical greens smoothie powder
  • 3/4 – 1 cup Better Than Milk Oat Milk

Toppings:

  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Blueberry Apple superseed mix or granola

Instructions

Prep ahead of time. Peel and slice a banana to freeze. Pro tip: freeze the slices in an ice tray so they don’t clump together. Once they are frozen, then you can put them in a bag!

You’ll need a blender. Depending on what blender you use, you may need to use a different frozen:liquid ratio. Always start with less liquid, you can always add more.

Start with the frozen items. Add in the frozen banana and frozen mango.

Next, add in spinach, dates, and smoothie powder. Adding powder and seeds near the end prevents the seeds from getting stuck in the blade and potentially causing damage.

Add that liquid last. It may not look like a lot but start with less.

Put your top on the blender (and make sure it’s plugged in).

Blend blend blend. If you have a tool to stir, that is super helpful. At this point, you can add more oat milk if needed.

Transfer to a bowl. Smooth out your smoothie with a spoon.

Top with banana, blueberry and granola.
