Strawberry Smoothie

I bought a few too many strawberries at the farmers market and needed something to do with them, so I found this recipe, made a few tweaks and voila!

Strawberry Smoothie

adapted from: Everyday Food

  • 1 cup Strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/3 ice cups

Blend the oats and almonds first to make a powder (this is critical or you have a really crunchy smoothie).  Then toss everything else in and blend! Add more or less ice according to your taste (if you add less I’d pop your smoothie in the freezer a few minutes before you enjoy it).  A great start to your morning (and will definitely keep you tied over until lunch).
