Gluten Free Berry Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

4

As I put together a smoothie recipe that I thought all members of my family would enjoy, while adding as much nutrition as I could, I came across several recipes that included oatmeal. At first I wasn’t sure how that would work in a smoothie, but now I am so glad I gave it a chance.

The breakfast smoothie recipe is an adaption of a few I came across. I created this smoothie to fit the needs of my family, so we used Gluten free oatmeal and added almond milk.

If you like your smoothie tart then add another tablespoon of frozen orange juice concentrate. We preferred it less tart. Five out of Six people in my family really liked this smoothie, even the three and four year old! I love having the added oatmeal for the health benefits oatmeal offer. The greek yogurt is a great addition for protein which is substantially higher in protein than regular yogurt. This smoothie offers a high amount of potassium, fiber, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin C plus other needed vitamins and nutrients. It is however calorie dense, coming in at 506.6 calories if you drink the whole smoothie. We managed to get two smoothies out of this one recipe so it didn’t seem quiet so bad.

All in all we really liked this recipe and we will be making this one again!

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 Cup oatmeal
  • 4 Heaping Table spoons of Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate
  • 1/3 cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Blueberries
  • 6 Frozen Strawberries
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

Grind the oatmeal in a blender until as fine as you can get it. Add all other ingredients and blend until desired consistency. Enjoy.

    The growth of the banana trees can be accelerated in several ways.
    After that, rinse the paste off with some warm water and
    some splashes of very cold water before patting your face dry.
    We can then choose whether or not to buy this range depending on our understanding of what fair trade is all about.

    Bananas reduces the calcium excretion, which reduces the risk of kidney
    stones and improves bone strength. They are great for
    constipation, as they aid in bowel movements.
