Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Sometimes it can be tough to get a healthy breakfast in. You all know how important breakfast is, it has been drilled into our brains since 7th grade health class. I find that I am always running around in the morning and barely have time to make a healthy breakfast that will keep me full and focused all throughout my morning. I have found that breakfast smoothies are my best bet when it comes to a fast and nutritional breakfast because all I have to do is throw a few ingredients in a blender, blend, and then toss it in a cup and go! Here is the recipe to my favorite breakfast smoothie, the blueberry oatmeal smoothie!

Ingredients:download

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ¾ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tsp honey (this is optional)
  • And if you are using fresh un-frozen blueberries, 4-5 ice cubes

If you REALLY want to be prepared, measure out the blueberries, banana, and oatmeal the night before and place them into a plastic Ziploc baggie. Put the baggie in the freezer to keep the fruit frozen and in the morning all you have to do is toss those ingredients into the blender and then add the other few ingredients! It is super easy to make this smoothie, just add all of the ingredients together into the blender and blend until they are all chopped up! This recipe makes about 2 servings of smoothie, so give the rest to your siblings or parents! Trust me, they will love you for it. J

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

Looking for a way to get a morning boost? Check out this yummy breakfast smoothie! 

So I came across this recipe on Pinterest and fell in love with it! It tastes just like apple pie in a cup! So here are the ingredients:

–          5 almonds

–          1 red apple

–          1 banana                                                                    

–          ¾ cup Greek yogurt, nonfat

–          ½ tsp cinnamon         

–          ½ cup milk, nonfat

That’s it! Looks super simple, right? Combine all of the ingredients in your blender and blend them until they are a smooth consistency. Then viola! You now have apple pie in a cup. This smoothie is super healthy and will keep you full and focused until lunch time. If you like your smoothies cold like I do, freeze your bananas before you blend them. You can also toss a few ice cubes in with the mixture before you blend it.
