After being a part of the Redskins Kids Club Combine on Saturday, I felt moved to create a smoothie that both kids and parents would love, but was also super-healthy for our bodies.

Unlike most traditional banana breads, this smoothie won’t weigh you down. It’s packed full of electrolytes and potassium. It also feeds the body magnesium, vitamin E & C. These nutrients make it an excellent post-workout snack or mini-meal. 

1 banana, very ripe
1 cup coconut water
1 cup ice
1/4 cup no-sugar added oats (use gluten free if this is a concern)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
8 hazelnuts (or 1/4 cup of almonds or cashews)
1 tablespoon whipped cream
A dash of un-sweetened coco powder


Place all the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Pour in a glass and top with whipped cream and coco-powder.
