Mixed Berry Oatmeal Smoothie

Something I find extremely difficult to do is to make sure I get enough calories in me when I’m running a lot. I made it a personal goal this year to make sure that I run as much as possible. I seriously was a humongous slacker last year, and I won’t let it happen again gosh darn-it! Smoothies are huge for me when I’m running a lot, and I always try to have a large one after I’ve finished exercising. A great ingredient to add into smoothies is cooked oatmeal. Oatmeal is full of nutrients and perfect for breakfast, lunch or as a snack any time of day. The biggest problem I have with oatmeal is that I can hardly stand it by itself. Whenever I have oatmeal, it’s usually smothered in brown sugar, nuts and all other kinds of deliciousness. I found that putting it in my smoothies was the perfect solution to my little oatmeal situation. This oatmeal smoothie is one of my favorites. It combines blueberries and raspberries (two of my favorite berries). The sky is the limit in what you can put in yours. The recipe is simple and you can have it gobbled up in less than 5 minutes. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!






Recipe Fun Facts:

For a dairy-free version: substitute the greek yogurt for 1/4 cup more of vanilla almond milk.

For a gluten-free version: substitute the quick oats for gluten-free quick oats.

If protein is what you are after, a great alternative, is to eliminate the berries and throw some nut butter into the mix. Whatever your poison may be: almond butter, cashew butter, peanut butter, etc…this is a huge hit and extremely delicious. Also nut butters go very well with oatmeal! That is an extreme win in my book. ;)

I have a lot of fun recipes coming your way this week, and I’m super excited to share them with you. Now I go nap. I’ve been cooking all day! Whew!

  1. This is genius! I never would have thought to out cooked oatmeal in a smoothie, but it’s just such a perfect smoothie ingredient on so many levels – not least of all thickening (I mean how many bananas can you eat!?)

  2. I Love oatmeal smoothies and the berries in this drink just makes it that much better. Thank you for sharing Justine. This is going in the rotation!
