Strawberry Oats smoothie | Easy Breakfast Recipes

Weekend grocery shopping is one thing I love... Not because its weekend but because shopping is therapeutic to me just like baking. And when it comes to exotic seasonal fruit shopping, its gala time for me. Especially the reddy red strawberries... Oh how I love seeing them stacked on a bed of fresh green leaves. Strawberries are at their best when in-season. Ripe, red, sweet and less tart. Off-season they are just the opposite, but that never stops me from grabbing a box or two every weekend.

The off-season berries are great for jams, preserves, ice-creams, tarts, curds or any other desserts. All you need is sugar to sweeten 'em up. As it goes, last week when I went grocery shopping, I saw them, they were red, ripe, big and juicy... I was surprised to see such juicy berries off-season and I didn't want somebody to tell me to grab a box. Added to that my niece was coming to visit us that weekend. She loves strawberries, anything strawberry to be specific and those juicy berries was everything that I needed.

I made some strawberry cupcakes to pack for her and the rest was blended into milkshakes, popsicles, some strawberry glee to top a simple milk pudding and then a glass of this strawberry oats smoothie.

~What U Need*~
Quick Cooking Oats - 5 tbsps
Strawberries - 1/2 cup
Chilled Milk - 2 cups
Sugar / Honey - 1 tbsp
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp(optional)

How I Made it:
Dry roast the oats till light brown and a nutty aroma comes off. Blend to a smooth powder. Add the remaining ingredients and blend till smooth.

Serve chilled!!!

** My Notes:
** Always ripe and red berries.
** You could add a handful of nuts or chocolate chips too when serving.
** You can use a mixture of raspberry, blueberry and strawberry.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
