recipe: almond oat smoothie


we've been trying lots of new smoothie combinations this year and so far, this is one of our favorites. it's such a filling breakfast (but not in that way-too-full-can't-move kind of way) and is perfect when we don't have time for much in the morning. I like to make an extra so we have something easy to grab out of the fridge for later too (though those often go to work with kenji!).
