Start the day on the right foot with a protein-packed Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie!
Happy New Year!
It’s January 1st, and that means it’s smoothie time. After weeks of indulging in so many sweets and treats, I’m ready to get back to some healthy eating. Anyone else? Since January is National Oatmeal month, it seems quite appropriate that we kick off 2015 off with a Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie.
Have you ever put oatmeal in your smoothies? I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first, but once I tried it, it was love at first sip. It’s a great way to get some bulk in your smoothie when you don't have protein powder on hand. (Or you think you have protein powder in the pantry only to discover that someone else used the last of it without telling you...Grrrr.) Fortunately, I always have oatmeal on hand, and since this smoothie uses everyday ingredients, consider the Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie your new go-to breakfast. Sweetened with blueberries, vanilla Greek yogurt and a touch of agave, it is a great way to start your day, and your year.
Here's to a happy and healthy 2015!
- 1 cup frozen blueberries (you can also use fresh)
- 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon Agave, honey or maple syrup (add more or less to sweeten to taste)
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until well combined.
