Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe

strawberry oatmeal smoothie recipe

The great thing about smoothies is that they make for a healthy, quick breakfast. I love that you can throw just about anything in them and they’re probably, most likely, going to be amazing.

Usually, I avoid strawberries in the winter because they are sooo expensive (use this In Season Fruits and Veggies guide to stay on track) but I lucked out the other day at the grocery store and got a pound of them for $2.50! When I ran across this Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe I knew I had to give it a try. I love using oatmeal whenever I can because it’s so cheap, filling, and nutritious. These smoothies are super tasty and they stick with ya!

Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe…

You’ll need:

– 1 cup soy, almond, rice, or cow’s milk

– 1/2 cup rolled oats (aka Old-Fashioned oats – be sure to buy generic there is absolutely no difference between on and off brand oats!)

– 1 banana (right before bananas go bad peel the skin off, break them into chunks, and freeze them)

– 14 frozen strawberries (or freeze fresh ones when you find them on sale)

– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

– 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar (optional)

How to:

Blend together the milk and oats. Once thoroughly blended add in the remaining ingredients, and then drink up!
