Oatmeal in a smoothie? Yep! Oats work great as a “thickener” kind of like yogurt or ice cream, except healthier. We use gluten free oats for this smoothie, and if we can’t make eggs in the morning, we’ll put some protein powder in and it keeps us full for quite a while.
Berry Oat Smoothie
Berries and oats were made to go together.
- 2 1/2 Cups Milk Alternative
- 1 Cup Blueberries (frozen)
- 1 Cup Strawberries (frozen)
- 1 Cup Boysenberries (frozen – and also optional)
- 1 Banana (frozen)
- 1/2 cup Quick Gluten Free Rolled Oats (not cooked)
- 1 cup Spinach or other greens of choice
- 1 tsp Chia Seeds
Add it all straight into the blender, blend and enjoy.
If it’s too thick add more liquid, if it’s too thin add either oats or more berries.
