Hi again! It's been a little while since I've posted, but as I said in my last post...we've been pretty busy! I wanted to pop on here to share another smoothie recipe with you. It's been my go-to breakfast for the past couple weeks, and it really does keep me full until my 10:30 am break.

I call it, SBGOS - Strawberry, Banana, Grape, Oatmeal Smoothie. Is it ever delicious! I also put it in my cute mason jar tumbler from Wal-Mart and then it makes me happy, on top of also feeling full. It's the little things, right?!

Here are the ingredients listed in the order you put them in your magic bullet (if it's a blender, do it in the opposite order, as you want the frozen fruit to be the first thing blended):
  • One serving of any flavor yogurt (I use Activia or whatever's on sale)
  • 1/3 cup of quick oats
  • 1 tsp of honey
  • 1 tbsp Chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 overripe banana, broken in to small chunks
  • Fill the rest of the cup with frozen strawberries and grapes
  • 1/3 cup of vanilla almond milk 
If your smoothie isn't blending very well, shake it up a bit (with the lid on, of course!) If that still isn't working, add some water or more almond milk!

Next grocery shopping trip, I'm going to pick up some different varieties of frozen fruit. I used up the last of the strawberries this morning, and I only have peach and a pineapple left. I also think adding some peanut butter would be tasty with just banana. So many options!

I hope you enjoy your smoothie!
And let me know if you tried this recipe out, or if you would like to share your own!

  1. I'll have to try this recipe. This morning I tried overnight oats for the first time. It was so bad. Yours looks much more appetizing.
