The Smoothie

For those who follow me on Instagram, you possibly saw me post this recipe there a couple months ago. This is one of my favorite breakfasts! I created this mix on my own a while ago, and with the help of my dear friend, Peggy (@hashtag_peggy on Instagram) I added oats to give it an extra boost.

Ingredients:
1 6oz container of Vanilla or Strawberry Yogurt (I use store bought, and Strawberry)
1/2 cup Frozen Strawberries, chopped
1/3 cup Frozen Peaches, chopped
1/4 tsp Chia Seeds (I use my fingers and do a pinch of them)
1-2 tbls Ground Oats
1/2 cup 1% Milk

Directions:
Place in blender, in order of listing, and begin blending. Use a spatula to scrap the sides if needed, and blend until there are no more “chunks”. If the smoothie is thick, and not blending evenly add a little more milk. Once blended, pour into a glass and enjoy!

I can drink the whole thing, and it tides me over until lunch. It’s just so chock full of yummy goodness!

Suggestions and Tips:
With the ground oats, try starting off with 1 tablespoon, this add a texture to the smoothie, and some may not like the thickness/texture it adds.

I also grind my oats in a food processor and store them in a sealed container. This makes it much quicker to make the smoothie.

Pre-chopping your frozen peaches and strawberries makes the process go a lot quicker as well. I do this and store them in a sealed container in my freezer.

Happy Blending!
