Breakfast on the Go

It's so easy to get caught up getting ready in the morning and even easier to skip breakfast!  If you're anything like me, I crave a full meal but never get up early enough to put it together.  Therefore, I get stuck with the same cereal everyday and it's starting to get a little boring.  So here's a little help, make a smoothie!  Smoothies are awesome, green being my favorite, but do you ever feel like it's just not enough to hold you through the morning?  Here's a secret-add more after the blend!  This morning, I had a strawberry, milk, oats and yogurt smoothie topped with granola and more fruit.  Check out the recipe below!

Ingredients

  • 5 Strawberries
  • 1 cup of milk-I used Almond but any type of milk is fine
  • 1/2 cup of old fashion oats
  • 1.5 cup of Greek yogurt -this is for thickness and to keep you full
  • 2 teaspoons of granola
  • A few fruit toppings of your choice-I used raspberries

Instructions

  • Toss your strawberries,  oats, milk and yogurt into your type of blender and blend for about 20 seconds.  The time you blend is going to depend on how thick you want your smoothie to be.  I'm in the middle, not too thick and not too juicy so I generally stick to 20 seconds.
  • Pour your smoothie into a cup and top it first with granola to set a base for your fruit to sit on, then put your fruit directly over the granola and you're done!  
  • Don't freak out if the granola and fruit starts to sink, it's supposed to.  Think of this smoothie as if the smoothie itself is the milk and your added fruit and granola is your cereal.
Hope you enjoy your five minute on the go breakfast!
