Recipe // Breakfast Smoothie.

Oatmeal + triple berry smoothie = absolutely delicious! For a quick breakfast in the morning, I have been making a lot of these breakfast smoothies. Another great thing is that these smoothies are full of healthy things, and let's face it, we all need some healthiness in our lives! I have been playing around with my recipe lately, mixing up a few different recipes that I have found. 


1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup low-fat yogurt
1 tsp flax seeds
1 cup mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries)
1 cup ice
1 cup milk


1. Place quick oats and flax seeds in a dry blender. Blend until oats are ground into a fine powder. This step is a must!!

2. Add the yogurt, ice, mixed berries and milk.

3. Cover and blend until smooth and creamy. 

To mix things up a bit this morning, I added 1/2 cup of spinach to my smoothie. I was hesitant about the first few spoonful's, but once I got over the idea of having spinach in my smoothie, it was actually really good. To be honest, I couldn't really taste it, and neither could my boyfriend. To sweeten it up, I also added a spoonful of honey. 

What's your favorite type of smoothie? 


  1. yumm! this looks so good! i try to make a 'green' smoothie every day for a meal (spinach, drinking yogurt, fruit and peanut butter) but i love the idea of oats in it as well! thanks for sharing! i'm going to be trying this out this week. new follower here!

    1. I love adding the quick oats because it makes it much more filling. Just make sure you blend them first into a fine powder!!

  2. I love mixed berries, kefir, flax, protein powder, and a frozen banana. Yummo! And my dessert smoothie is chocolate syrup (just a tad), pb, frozen cherries, frozen banana, flax, and milk. Helps satisfy those chocolate cravings without feeling ridiculously guilty!

  3. I eat a spinach smoothie every day for lunch. I love it! I like to experiment with different fruits...and so far my favorite has been: spinach, cranberries, bananas, and plain yogurt. Yum!

    I found your blog through The Brotherton's and I love it...super cute. I can't wait for your next post!
