With the new year, I’ve decided to try to eat breakfast more often and also eat more fresh fruit. Why not do both at the same time? Smoothies are a great way to do just that!
I’ve been noticing the trend of adding oats to smoothies, I was intrigued and had to give it a try. I really liked the addition! It gives smoothies sort of a doughy taste, in a really good way.
If you know me well at all, you know that I really dislike bananas, but they give a great texture to smoothies and, when blended with other fruit, they’re barely detectable. Mangos also make smoothies smooth and delicious (check out my Blueberry Mango Smoothie and Pineapple Mango Smoothie)!
I like to wash and freeze blueberries for smoothies, you could also freeze the banana for this recipe.
Blueberry Banana Oat Smoothie 1 large serving
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 cup almond milk
- handful of ice
- honey (optional, for added sweetness)
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. You’ll probably need to blend it a little longer than a normal smoothie, to make sure that the oats are well incorporated. Add extra almond milk if smoothie seems too thick.
Have you tried adding oats to smoothies? Are there any other special ingredients that you like to throw in?
