We made Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothies for breakfast a few days ago and they were a hit.
I didn’t think they were as yummy as the Pick-Me-Up Smoothies, but the children gobbled them down. (By the way, I’ve found that if I let the children actively participate in helping cut and prepare fruits and vegetables, they are so much more excited about eating them!)
The oatmeal gave it a bit more of a heavy consistency, but I was surprised how little you actually noticed it.
Kaitlynn wanted to pour her own.
Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe
- 1 cup ice
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon sweetener (we used agave nectar, but you could use honey or sugar)
- 1 cup milk (we used rice milk, but I think regular milk would make it creamier)
Measure ice and strawberries and pour into the bottom of the blender. Add the remaining ingredients on top. Blend until completely smooth. Serve immediately or freeze in small containers for later use. Serves 2-4.
