Blend until the mixture is smooth, and divide between 2 bowls.

This recipe makes two smoothies: Blend 1/2 cup whole milk (or substitute w/ plant or nut milk), 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 cup frozen peaches, 1/2 frozen banana, a 1/2 serving of our organic vanilla protein, and 1/2 cup ice then blend until smooth.

3. Pineapple Passion Smoothie

This decadently thick smoothie recipe will satisfy your cravings for an ice cream cone. Plus, pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps break down protein and may help reduce bloating.

If you’re plagued by a nervous stomach before big events, try sipping this smoothie beforehand. It includes banana, which contains the relaxing mineral magnesium; and the yogurt’s probiotics may ease anxiety as well.

For best results in easing anxiety, sip it two hours before you need to calm your nerves.
