Bean and Oat Smoothies

My new favorite things are blended beans and raw oat milk.

Oat milk is really creamy and has a natural mild sweetness to it. For baking, I keep a supply of oat flour, which I make by putting old fashioned dry rolled oats into a blender. I add water to some of this oat flour and either drink immediately or let soak for 10 minutes or more for easier digestitude.
Cooked beans are almost flavorless when blended and therefore make a very healthy and easy addition to any smoothie. I like vanilla, which I prepare with oat milk and unsweetened vanilla flavored almond milk, and add a little honey and/or stevia. But there are countless bean smoothie recipes you can find online. (I avoid adding fruit because fruit digests best with only fruit or greens.)
Blending my red beans just now I noticed it looks just like chocolate milkshake, so consider making a healthier, perhaps carob version for the kiddos!
