LORI’S BONE BOOSTING SMOOTHIE

Getting 1200 mg a day of calcium is a challenge as I don’t eat dairy (from cow) and I refuse to try sardines or canned salmon with bones😝. I use oat milk — I found that Planet Oat’s oat milk has the most calcium per cup at 350 mg! It may have other additives that aren’t great, but here the good (of the calcium) outweighs the other potentially less helpful ingredients for me. I always use unsweetened as I get plenty of sweetness from the other ingredients. As an added bonus, this sweetener (molasses) also contains magnesium, potassium and iron! Sometimes, I add cacao nibs and/or chia seeds for texture or taste to my bone boosting smoothie.
