I wanted to try something different with my smoothies, so I decided to make an oatmeal one. Even though it’s higher in calories, I am using wholesome ingredients and it is a bit more filling than just a fruit smoothie.
I like to pack my smoothies with extra fiber and protein by adding Greek yogurt, chia seeds and flax seeds. I use almond milk because I stopped drinking dairy milk to reduce calories and fat. I don’t normally drink an entire smoothie, especially when it’s this high in calories, so I put half in the fridge for the next day.
1/4 cup Steel Cut Oats
3 ounces Fage 0% Greek Yogurt (or yogurt of your choice, Greek has more protein)
1/2 medium Banana
3/4 cup Almond Milk
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tbsp. Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 tbsp. Honey
1/2 tbsp. Chia Seeds (optional)
1 tbsp. Ground Flax Seed (optional)
3 ice cubes (optional)
Add ingredients to blender. Place lid on the blender tightly. Put on smoothie mode and blend for a minute or two. Pour into 16 oz or larger cup and enjoy!
