Tickle your taste buds with this delicious, nutritious, and filling smoothie. Breakfast, lunch, or healthy snack – this smoothie has you covered.
In this third installment of oatmeal based smoothies I bring you this strawberry treat. Strawberries are just coming into season here in Michigan which means I need clear out those stragglers in my freezer from last year to make room for a fresh crop.
Here’s a quick rundown of the health benefits of this smoothie.
High in vitamin C, manganese, and fiber, strawberries are good for your cardiovascular system, impart antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties, and help regulate blood sugar.
Oatmeal is also high in fiber, helps stabilize blood sugar, supports a healthy heart, and imparts antioxidant properties. In addition, oatmeal is an immune system booster, lowers cholesterol, and is an excellent source of magnesium.
It’s important that you properly prepare your oats before consuming. See my Fruity Oatmeal Smoothie which contains simple preparation instructions to maximize nutrition and digestibility.
This recipe is pretty basic. Feel free to incorporate one or more of the optional add-ons or any other ingredients you have on hand. Enjoy!
