Summer Fruits Breakfast Smoothie...


We love smoothies and milkshakes here. 

My latest obsession is adding oats into them!! 

Breakfast smoothies, how yummy!!



Ingredients:
  • 200 ml Semi skimmed milk
  • 4 Heaped tablespoons of oats
  • 4 Heaped tablespoons of frozen mixed Summer berries. I used Cherries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blackcurrants.
  • 1 Large banana
  • 1 Heaped teaspoon of peanut butter (optional)


Method:

  1. I use 2 smoothie bottle; first I add the oats into a smoothie bottle and blend until fine.
  2. In my second bottle I add the milk and frozen berries. Blend together until smooth. Sieve the fruit milk to remove all summer berries pips.
  3. Pour the fruit milk into the oats and shake well. For thicker smoothie I place this into fridge for 10 minutes.
  4. Chop the banana and add with the peanut butter to smoothie.
  5. Blend until smooth.
  6. Serve straight away!!
  7. Yummy!!


I have been having these smoothies after our morning walk/runs with Mollie the Collie. They are great to make quickly when you are rushing around.


Do you like adding oats or any other breakfast cereals into smoothies?

  12. I ground up an entire bag of oat groats yesterday into flour for adding to shakes and smoothies. It is the perfect thickener and so good for you.
