We have been on such a smoothie kick here in the Smith household! It’s such a fun way to use up all that fruit that’s so ripe at the market these days. Plus, it’s an easy way to get the kiddos in the kitchen helping out with some of the “cooking.” Brady has been in love with smoothies for a while now, but recently Nolan has become addicted. He takes them very seriously.
With back to school (pre-school for Brady) just around the corner, I wanted to try out an Oatmeal Smoothie recipe because it seemed like the perfect quick breakfast that can be taken in the car…for those days that we’re running late! This recipe is full of oats, fruit, and protein packed yogurt and skim milk. I can’t think of a better way to start the day!
About a cup of chopped peaches (or whatever juicy fruit you have on hand)
About a cup of frozen berries (I had blueberries and strawberries on hand)
1 ripe banana
1 cup of milk
1 small container of Greek Yogurt (I used Blueberry flavored)
1 cup of ice
1/2 a cup of rolled oats (do not cook)
All you have to do is throw everything in the blender and blend until it’s smooth. This made enough for about 2 good portions. The oats give it a very thick consistency and make you feel so satisfied!
