You may have noticed I have become quite partial to smoothies lately! There are a couple of reasons for that. Firstly I never owned a blender and now I have the Soup and Co, I can use the blender functionality on this super machine which makes making smoothies much easier. Secondly they are a great recovery drink when I come back in from running.
Looking for new smoothie recipes I came across The Yummy Life, which has an amazing collection of recipes including a detailed post on Oatmeal Smoothies. Using a pseudo formula shared in the post, I made up my own breakfast smoothie.
You actually need to make them the night before so the chia seeds and oats can soften, but this is part of the attraction for me. I can make the night before, store them in the little jars and with a quick shake they are ready in the morning when I come back from a run.
The author of The Yummy Life, Monica, says also that they can be frozen and has a list of nutritional info, tips and suggestions about the Oatmeal Smoothies you can read here.
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 cup low fat milk
- 1/4 cup low-fat yogurt
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2. Add milk to the blender and stir a little to make sure the oats and seeds are mixed in.
