Drink Your Oats

We are big smoothie drinkers around here. They are great for breakfast or an afternoon snack. I usually put in yogurt, bananas and strawberries or mangoes, basically whatever fruit we have hanging around, a little milk and on occasion a little drizzle of honey. Last week were looking for a way to mix things up a little so we made banana oatmeal smoothies. I know it sounds a bit bizarre, but they were delicious. We used plain homemade yogurt, bananas, cinnamon, some milk, a drizzle of honey,and a small handful of raw oats. There was great texture to it and the flavours were fantastic. So if you are looking for a new smoothie to try, throw in some oats. What is your favourite smoothie?

  1. Hi there! Thanks for visiting me over at Thimbleberry! I love finding new blogs! Can’t wait to come back and visit you here at Prairie Girl! Oatmeal smoothies are divine! Hugs, Lisa

    where in the world does one find raw oats? Sounds yummy though. I don’t like eating oatmeal but I don’t think I would mind so much if it didn’t have the consistency of mush.

    Rachel,
    Sorry to confuse you, but I just meant uncooked oats. The same kind that you would use to make oatmeal, just blend them in instead of cooking them.

    That sounds really good. I’ve never tried oats in a smoothie. Our favorite smoothies these days are the simple frozen bananas, honey, soy milk kind. Tastes just like a frosty milk shake. Yum!

    Hi! I’ve done this a few times in the past and I love it! Ithink the recipe I used called for some rhubarb too, I think you had to leave it overnight in a little bit of orange juice – otherwise we tend to do banana+milk+weetabix, that’s really tasty for breakfast!

  6. I’m going to try your suggestion – I just LOOOOVE smoothies and I have to say that Blue-berry smoothies are my fav!

    We love smoothies too. Ours almost always contain silken tofu along with fresh or frozen fruit and a little juice or milk. The tofu gives it a wonderfully smooth texture and adds needed protein for one of my kids who is vegetarian. We all love it. Our next smoothies will contain oats as well!
