If you recall, I shared this gorgeous bowl of oats with you a few days ago.
Pretty huh? I've been craving it a lot since I ate it but it has gotten pretty warm here in NY so I don't really want to eat hot oatmeal first thing on a hot morning so I tried to figure out a way to cool it down. There is always overnight oats but it is hard for me to eat it like that. I don't know why but I really have to be in the mood for it. I think it is a textural thing.
Anyway, I saw this post by Gabby and knew that would be the perfect way to cool off my favorite bowl of oats.
Check out this beautiful Morning Oats Smoothie! It definitely tasted amazing, I'm glad I decided to try this smoothie. It'll definitely be a summer staple and I'm sure I'll start adding some greens to it too.
Morning Oats Smoothie
1/3 cup oats (I used gluten free)
1 cup plant milk (I used Unsweetened Almond Coconut Almond Breeze)
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tbsp finely chopped walnuts
1 tbsp raisins
1 small frozen banana
The night before, mix all ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate overnight to soften everything. In the morning add your overnight oats with toppings along with your frozen banana to a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
So good! Let me know if you try it/like it :) I have to get ready to head out but I'll catch up on your blogs when I get home. Have a great night!
