Oat/soy/hemp/almond milk (500ml, use as much as you want to drink)
Spinach (a handful, or however much you want)
Instant oats (4-5 tbsp)
Ground flax seed (1/2-1 tsp)
Coconut sugar (1/2-1 tbsp)
Vanilla (a few drops)
Cocoa powder (3 tsp)
Vegan protein powder, maple syrup, green tea extract
Blend the spinach with a little of the oat milk until smooth. Add in the rest of the ingredients, blend, and serve.
Oats (1 cup)
Water (3 cups)
Blend oats and water together then strain through muslin cloth or something similar.
This milk will separate but once shaken up is fine.
Smoothness depends on how finely it has been strained but in a shake or smoothie the texture isn’t so important.
Use a ratio of 1:3 of oats:water and use within 3 days.

Dates (5-6 chopped small, more for a bigger or sweeter shake)
Soy/oat/hemp/rice/almond milk (500ml, or as much as you want)
Cocoa (1-2 tbsp)
Instant oats (1-3 tbsp)
Banana, syrup, vanilla
If using a low-power blender, blend the dates with some of the milk until very fine.
Add in the rest of the milk and ensure dates are fully blended.
Add in cocoa and instant oats (instant oats aren’t essential but add some thickness to the shake).
Soy milk (2 cups, depends how thick or runny you like it- any milk is fine)
Vanilla extract (1 packet or 1 tsp, or more depending on preference)
Sugar (2 tsp, or more)
Stick all ingredients in a blender and blend. Have a taste to see if it’s sweet enough or vanillery enough. Adjust and enjoy!
