Here is a smoothie recipe courtesy of my own resident chef, Michael. It is really easy and good. Please note that due to the oatmeal, it does have a different texture. He found it because it is dairy free and right now I cannot have dairy-such a sweetie!!!
Michael's Spring Smoothie
1 cup frozen strawberries (or any other frozen fruit-the second round I used frozen bananas)
1 cup orange juice
2/3 cup Quaker Oats (uncooked or cooked-I used uncooked)
2/3 tsp ginger or 3/4 tsp nutmeg (I used ginger and it was good)
Directions - Combine all ingrediants in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour in a glass and enjoy.
*Helpful tip* - the longer you pulse the blender the smoother the oatmeal becomes. The first round of smoothies were a bit chunkier which I didn't mind. For the second round I used some fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, frozen bananas, and a little less oatmeal. I blended it longer and it tasted a bit, well smoother.
