Oscar Party Smoothie

Oscar Party Smoothie


par: Chelsea Brennan

I made this smoothie last week and it has been on my mind ever since. It’s just one of those recipes that sticks with you.  Maybe it’s the fact that it took me about 1 hour to make (which is a record long time in my world of smoothie-making), or maybe it’s because each layer is made with nutrient-rich ingredients that come together in such a perfectly sweet way making it the ultimate treat to enjoy while watching Leo win his Oscar tomorrow night.

The dates in this recipe make it more of a desert than something you can really enjoy first thing in the morning – It’s a little too sweet for me, but that’s just my opinion. It’s my version of a smoothie I found on @papaya_sunshine’s Instagram account.
