I do have a bowl of cereal once in a while. Elaborate breakfasts are reserved for the weekends. On weekend mornings, we have a bowl of oatmeal with nuts and fruits. Our recent addiction is this quick breakfast smoothie filled with the goodness of oats, nuts and fruits. Yes this smoothie contains oats!
Just add all the ingredients in a blender and blend to the required consistency. And the smoothie gets ready in minutes. You can add ingredients depending on your taste and liking. It contains no sugar. it gets its natural sweetness from the fruits and dates.
The smoothie is also good-to-go. Just fill in a bottle of this delicious smoothie and you can carry it along with you and have it any time during the day!
Here is my version!
Ingredients (Makes 2 tall glasses)
Orange - 1
Banana - 1
Kiwi - 1
Soaked almonds - 5
Dates - 4
Flax seeds - 1 teaspoon
Oats - 1/4 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Peel the orange and kiwi. Chop the dates and banana roughly. Add all the ingredients in a blender and pulse it for about 3 to 4 times. You can increase or decrease the amount of milk to get the desired consistency. I added orange and kiwi as I had them on hand.
Feel free to use any fruit you like. Other options include oat bran, wheat bran, peanut butter, honey etc.
Enjoy this nutritious and power packed smoothie!!
