Looking for a quick and easy smoothie recipe? Try this delicious Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie with Skinny Coconut Oil!
Thanks to the oats in this smoothie, it is particularly filling and perfect for breakfast on the go. It is also very customizable- if you would like a different berry or a combination, go crazy!
5-6 ice cubes
3-4 tbsp. of oats
1 tbsp. of Skinny Coconut Oil
1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk
1 cup of strawberries, or any berry of your choice
If you do not like having small chunks of coconut oil in your smoothie, try warming up your coconut oil in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and adding it in its liquid form. By doing this and adding the oil while it is blending, you will get a creamy consistency in your smoothie!
If your bananas are getting a little less than fresh, try freezing them in pieces and adding them to your smoothie that way! This will create an even colder, creamier treat.
