Here’s another great way to add more whole grain oats to your routine— add them to a smoothie. Not only does it boost the amount of beneficial fiber to the smoothie, but it also contributes some protein. If you are drinking smoothies for breakfast, adding oats makes the smoothie a more balanced and filling meal. You could also add some nut or seed butter or flax seed to add some healthy fats.
- 2/3 cup oats
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup strawberries (frozen is great)
- 1 cups unsweetened plant-based milk
- Ice (optional)
Note: You could also experiment with adding 1-2 Tbsp Nut or seed butter (e.g. cashew butter, sunflower butter) or 1-2 Tbsp ground flax seed or chia seeds.
