Berry Cinnamon Smoothie

I recently bought an OmniBlend high-speed blender (I'm loving it, I'll post a review soon!), so I've been all excited to make smoothies. Even though the weather is getting colder here in Melbourne, sometimes I still feel like a smoothie. So I developed this spiced wintery one, which is still served cold but includes comforting things like oats, nut butter and cinnamon.

I only add a small amount of oats and it still gives a beautiful creaminess. If you can't eat oats, you could add some natural protein powder instead. You can also use any nut butter (almond or cashew butter work well) or tahini if you're allergic to nuts. Feel free to add extra cinnamon to taste and I like to grate over some 90% cocoa dark chocolate at the end.

* Oats naturally don't contain gluten, but as they are often processed on the same equipment as wheat, they can often have traces of gluten. If you're strictly gluten-free, you can buy gluten-free oats or use a natural protein powder in place of the oats.
