All the flavor of a molasses spice cookie in a thick, rich, wholesome smoothie. An ideal and filling start to those crisp autumn mornings or an afternoon snack without the guilt to satisfy a craving.

Made as written. My taste buds weren't all that impressed but I really enjoyed the texture. I've never added oatmeal to a smoothie before and I think I will have to start. (In my basic fruit/yogurt smoothies). Read More

I have made this twice now and I like it better each time. First time I made it exactly as written but for the ice. Second time I had no bananas so I subbed half an avocado which also worked quite well but gave it a muddier appearance. Taste wise there was no great difference. Thanks Linda! Read More

The first time I made this as written except I omitted the ice. With the banana being frozen mine was thick enough and cold enough without it. It was good. The next time I made it I subbed coconut milk for the regular milk and I liked it much better this way. I also added a teaspoon of roasted almond butter and some ground flaxseed. Great smoothie.

Have made this many times and I usually add a sprinkle of nutmeg & cardomom too. It's an easy way to use up extra milk or get in a good source of iron (blackstrap molasses) when needed. Today I tried another reviewers rec and replaced some of the oats w/flax & chia. I couldn't taste them because I think the molasses & spices are so flavorful. But nice to get in even more nutrition that way. If you like molasses and cinnamon you'll enjoy this recipe. Read More

Great flavor! I substituted plain kefir for milk. I went a little heavier on the ginger since I likka da spice...taste just like a molasses cookie. Yum!! Read More
