Bored with the same old summer breakfast? This healthy Berry Smoothie with Oatmeal makes an excellent healthy breakfast blackberry smoothie or snack that will taste delicious and keep you full for hours.

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 Berry Smoothie with Oatmeal. 

Adding oatmeal to the smoothie give it a nutritional boost, thickens it, and adds quite a bit of fiber that will help you stay full longer. I could taste the oats, but it was a nice subtle flavor that went well with the berries.

This smoothie is dairy free and vegan since it is made with almond milk. It also has no banana, since although banana makes a smoothie creamy, it sometimes overwhelms the more delicate fruit flavors that berries provide.

Which berries are best in a berry smoothie?

This smoothie used blackberries, which are one of my favorite berries. It would be easy to use either raspberries, strawberries, or a mixture of all three berries instead and would not affect the recipe.

Blueberries are my favorite berry and they are super healthy too, with lots of antioxidants and health benefits. They aren’t nearly as sweet as other berry types though, so I probably would add a little more sugar or honey if I was using blueberries for this smoothie. Either fresh or frozen fruit works well in a Berry Smoothie.

Do you have to cook oatmeal before putting it in smoothies?

Using raw oatmeal in a smoothie is fine. Oatmeal adds complex carbohydrates and fiber to a smoothie, so it can make your feel more full. Some people don’t like the texture that dry oats add to a smoothie however.

If you soak them in almond milk or water for an hour or so before you make the smoothie they will blend better and your smoothie will have a smoother texture. I just use them dry however, or soak them for only a few minutes. Of course you can also use cooked oatmeal in a smoothie if you prefer the taste and texture.
