Believe me when I tell you…

Believe me when I tell you that you can’t even taste the oatmeal in the smoothie. Before you say “It has oatmeal in it, I am never trying this,” think about the worst that can happen? If you don’t like it, you can make your younger sibling drink it! I did this to my older brother: he thought he was drinking just a simple banana strawberry smoothie that I normally make — he had no idea there was oatmeal in it. He liked it!

Here is what you need for the breakfast smoothie:

1 Tbsp Quaker Oats 100% Natural Whole Grain Oatmeal

oatmeal

¼ cup 2% milk

Ice (approximately ½ cup)

1 small banana

4 fresh medium strawberries

1 Tbsp almonds, sliced

1 Tbsp honey

Put the oatmeal in the milk and heat in the microwave for 45 seconds. Pour it in the blender and add the remaining ingredients.

  • Most of the fat is monounsaturated fat – the healthy fat
  • BkfstSmothieNutritionUse skim milk to reduce the fat even more
  • Increase the almonds to add more protein
  • Frozen fruit works just as great and you might not need to add ice
  • Increase the oatmeal to increase fiber intake

Enjoy!
