Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe
This oatmeal yogurt smoothie is something you can make the night before and then put in the refrigerator ’til the next morning. It’s perfect!
If you’re looking for something filing, that’s another reason to indulge in this breakfast smoothie. The rolled oats provide fiber, and the almond milk gives you the protein.
Here are a few things you might want to know about oatmeal smoothies.
Can you use oatmeal in a smoothie?
Well, of course – that’s why we’re here! Having said that, the point of the oatmeal is to thicken the smoothie. The flavor of oats also blends with nearly every other flavor . . . milk, fruit, and more.
I love the thickness that the oats give to this breakfast beverage, especially with milk. I highly recommend it!
Do you have to cook oatmeal before putting in smoothie?
No, and I don’t recommend it. I like whole rolled oats that aren’t cooked, and that is what adds the thickness. If you don’t like your beverage so thick, you can soak the oats in milk or water for about an hour before making the recipe.
I don’t have any particular brand that I like – basically any rolled oats are fine. However I do have a brand of gluten free oats that I like: Bob’s Red Mill. They are really good! If you want to make this recipe gluten free, Bob’s.
Are oatmeal smoothies healthy?
Oats have some unique ingredients — in particular, the soluble fiber beta-glucan and antioxidants called avenanthramides. The benefits of oats include lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protection against skin irritation, and reduced constipation.
Plus are you aware of the health benefits of chia seeds? These little guys pack a healthy punch in a small package: tons of fiber, protein, healthy fats and more.
