This Blackberry Oatmeal Smoothie makes an excellent healthy breakfast or snack.
I usually eat eggs for breakfast, but lately I have been bored with having eggs all the time! So I decided to experiment with a hearty breakfast smoothie, and came up with this Blackberry Oatmeal smoothie.
Adding oatmeal to the smoothie thickens it, and adds quite a bit of fiber that will help you stay full longer. I soaked my oats in almond milk for about 15 minutes to soften them up so that they would blend well and not add a powdery texture to the smoothie, and it worked great! I could taste the oats, but it was a nice subtle flavor that went well with the blackberries.
Although I used raw oats I have seen other smoothies using cooked oats, so I will have to give that a try sometime soon.
- ½ c. rolled oats
- 1 c. almond milk
- ½ c. ice
- 1 T. honey or brown sugar
- ½ c. frozen blackberries
- Put the oats and almond milk in a blender and let the oat soak for about 15 minutes.
- Add the ice, sugar or honey and blackberries and blend.
- Add ¼ of water if you the smoothie is too thick.
What kind of smoothies do you enjoy for breakfast?
