Delicious Oatmeal Smoothie
This oatmeal smoothie is perfect to bring to work, on a picnic, for your family on the go, or to enjoy leisurely with the Sunday paper and a cup of tea.
This recipe is simple and easy. You can make a large batch ahead of time and store individual servings in pint-sized mason jars in your fridge.
Tip: We make a big pot of oatmeal on Sunday and use it creatively throughout the week for quick breakfast solutions. In fact, that is how we invented this protein-packed, fiber-filled, omega-3, overloaded breakfast bowl. Yesterday’s leftover cooked oats became today’s berry breakfast bowl.
Berry Breakfast Bowl
- 1 cup cooked oatmeal (cook whole rolled oats according to the package instructions)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup milk of your choice
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/2 cup frozen berries (or more if you’d like! We used 6 frozen strawberries)
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup or 2 medjool dates, seeds removed
Put all ingredients in a blender and give it a whirl.
Pour into a mason jar or bowl. Top with chopped nuts, a sprinkle of chia, fresh fruit or homemade granola, if desired.
