Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Smoothies are loaded with vitamins and nutrition.  Everyone has their own special recipe or combination.  This is more of a method than a recipe


Layer ingredients like a parfait in the size of glass you want.  Add oatmeal (about 1/3rd ).  Top with berries, (frozen or fresh) Add ice and enough water to blend
Sweeten with stevia or honey. Blend.

Healthy additions
If you omit the oatmeal then try adding a tablespoon of whole flax seeds or flax seed meal (vitamix will grind the seeds whole).  Dark leafy greens for green smoothies
Hemp - great protein source.  

I gleaned the oatmeal idea from a friend.  she also also adds peanut butter for protein.  The protein makes this a filling meal replacement without the need for pricey protein powders. 

Final note on smoothies - blenders work, but to really get pulp and seeds liquefied as well as crushing ice thoroughly - you need a powerful blender.  I'm a fan of Vitamix because it is a whole food juicer.  I use it once or more each day and I also use it to grind wheat into flour.  It's a two in one machine which equals less clutter.   It's was an investment but for me it was worth it.
