I have been on a health kick recently after realising I was slowly putting on a bit too much weight! Decided to at least start every day on the right note with a healthy oat smoothie to start the day. The problem with most oat smoothie recipes are they are American and those who have read other blogs on here know I detest recipes which have 'cups' as measures. This is 2015, why we allow such a inprecise measurement amazes me. I have cups in my kitchen sizing between 100ml and a pint, which size is right??
Anyway here is a very simple oat smoothie recipe, with normal measurements, for a nice filling start to the day
200g Strawberry (or one Banana. Do not use blueberries at this ratio as turns gelatinous!)
400ml Almond Milk
1. First get yourself a Brevil blender, a god send with such little fuss or mess for only £30 http://www.breville.co.uk/vbl062-blend-active.html.
2. Cut up the strawberry into quarters and add these, the milk and then oats into the bottle
3. I like to soak for 10 minutes and then blend.
4. Two mornings worth of smoothie, enjoy!
