This berry oats smoothie recipe is simple, creamy, nutritious, detoxifying, loaded with antioxidants, naturally sweet, beautifully bright, and completely and utterly delicious.
Ya, I realize it’s winter and this is a cold breakfast drink, but I can’t resist sharing this amazing and healthy Berry Oats Smoothie recipe.
I love healthy smoothie recipes whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall. They feel light yet they are filling. It’s a great thought knowing I am eating something healthy with plenty of flu-fighting ingredients to get me through the winter unscathed. If not unscathed, then a much quicker recovery time! Even without a flu shot!
Have you ever tried my green flu-fighter juice? Yep, another game changer for the flu-fighting season.
The nice thing about winter and fruits? Freezing them. They are so much cheaper and perfect to thicken up a smoothie. You can even buy them organic.
The other day when I was in the grocery store, I saw fresh blueberries and strawberries. When I went to reach for the organic, I about freaked…$7.99 for a pint! Holy cow. Non-organic was $5.99. It was still a holy cow freak moment. I checked out the frozen section and a HUGE bag of frozen fruit was $8.99. Um, it was a no-brainer. I bought the frozen fruit. My pocket book thanked me. You will too, for this tip: Buy fruit frozen in the off season (although I realize you are all smarter than me).
This berry oats smoothie recipe is simple, as always, requiring only 4 ingredients, 1 blender, and less than 5 minutes to make.
