Super Smoothies

Lately I've been on a smoothie kick.  They make a great breakfast or a super healthy snack.  Here's a few of my favorite recipes (they each make two servings)

Ginger, Berry, and Oat Smoothie

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup low fat plain yogurt
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Take the oats and let them soak in the water for 10-15 minutes until they are soft. 
Then, put all of the ingredients (oats and water included) into a blender and blend until smooth.

Berry Nut Smoothie

  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

I like to make a few batches at a time and store them in the fridge in ziplock baggies.  Then, I've got breakfast or snacks in a snap!


  1. I wouldn't have thought to put Ginger in a smoothie! I LOVE ginger!

    1. It's not very strong in this smoothie, but you could always add a little more for an extra kick :)

  2. Fun recipes! I'm going to have to try the Ginger Berry Oat! It sounds delicious!


  3. The berry nut smoothie sounds like something I would like and such a great idea to make several batches for later.
