Today's recipe (and as usual I use the word very loosely) is what has become my go to smoothie recipe. It has the perfect frosty texture, yummy strawberry taste and plenty of protein and fiber to keep me full.
oats - about 1/3 to 1/2 cup
plain greek yogurt - about 1/3 cup
unsweetened coconut milk - about 1/2 cup
honey - about 1 teaspoon
1 small orange or 1/2 full size orange
5 - 7 frozen strawberries
(sometimes I'll add a handful of spinach for extra oomph)
I have a small single serving blender, so the order I put stuff in is really important. If you have a normal blender you can just throw it all in there and blend until smooth.
I have found the best results by putting in the oats first, then adding the milk, yogurt, honey and orange and blending until smooth. Finally I add the frozen strawberries a few at a time until the smoothie is perfectly pink and frosty. Yum.
As you can see this 'recipe' makes a pretty decent size smoothie. And I have to admit I am addicted.
