I love smoothies but never really liked making them for breakfast, they just weren’t filling enough. That is, until I tried adding oatmeal! I definitely am a texture person when it comes to food, and I wasn’t sure how the oatmeal would be in a smoothie (they are supposed to be smooth, right?!). As long as you blend it up, the oatmeal adds a nice, thicker texture to the smoothie.
I recently got a mini blender that just makes one smoothie at a time. Before, I just used a regular blender but hardly ever made smoothies because it was such a pain to clean. The mini blender can go in the dishwasher so it is much easier to clean. This means it is much more likely that I will actually make smoothies!
Have you tried putting oatmeal in a smoothie? Let me know what else you mixed in! I’d love to hear your ideas and give them a try.
Here’s the recipe:
1 cup milk
1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1 tbsp honey
5 large frozen strawberries
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender in the order listed.
2. Blend well.
