I threw this together this morning for a quick and tasty breakfast. I don’t generally like to eat a big breakfast but I know it’s important in jumpstarting your metabolism for the day. This is a light and easy way to do it.

Chocolate-Peanut Butter-Banana Smoothie
1 ripe banana
1 cup almond milk
2 Tbsp peanut butter (I like to use one naturally sweetened with honey)
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup ice

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Berry & Oat Smoothie

IMG_2664
Happy Friday all! Getting the weekend started off right with a yummy fruit smoothie! I added rolled oats right into the blender which I haven’t tried before and it worked pretty well. A great way to get your oatmeal in the summertime.

Berry & Oat Smoothie
Makes approx. 16 ozs
12 ozs original unsweetened almond milk
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt

1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth

You can easily add in some other tasty treats, a banana would taste great as well. I was going to add spinach but realized I was all out when I went to make the smoothie. You could also substitute coconut water for the almond milk if you prefer. Get creative, the point is to get your morning oats!
