I don’t know about you guys, but i’m not really a breakfast person, brunch, absolutely, but I find that all I want in the morning is a cup of strong coffee! Cereal doesn’t excite me, but I don’t have the inclination to make anything more complicated when my eyes haven’t even opened! That’s where smoothies come in…
How to make a Berry Oat Smoothie for breakfast
The awesome things about smoothies, especially berry smoothies, is that there is little to no prep. Just chop the tops off of the strawberries, chuck everything in a blender and whizz! It’s such a simple recipe, that I did a little explainer video which you can check out in the recipe card at the bottom of this post, or on my Facebook page.
I opted to make this smoothie with coconut milk as it doesn’t have an overpowering taste so doesn’t compete with the berries. You could easily use another non dairy milk though, such as almond or soy, or opt for cow’s milk if that’s what you have in the fridge!
Is a Berry Oat Smoothie healthy?
As I’ve said before – I’m not a nutritionist, there’s other bloggers for that shizzle! But, this is a great breakfast option that is way healthier than a boxed cereal, and much more tasty. It’s a great way to get more fruit into your diet, and the oats bring an added hit of fibre. I added a couple of teaspoons of honey to this smoothie to add a bit of sweetness, although this is optional.
As the saying goes ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’, this is an easy way to get your energy for a busy morning and keep you satisfied til lunch.
