Fruit & Oatmeal Flax Smoothie

Fruit & Oatmeal Flax Smoothie | Sweet Remedy

Oatmeal and smoothies together equal pure bliss. I make these smoothies for a quick breakfast in the morning and sip it on my drive into work in my super cool travel cup. Another really great thing is that this is full of healthy things and we all need some health in our lives. Oatmeal is always good and you need fruits to complete your diet, lots of them. I also added some ground flax seed because that’s how I roll. I love flax, mainly because I don’t eat much fish (I’m sure my boyfriend will eventually change this fact) and flax contains Omega 3 fatty acids and Omega 3 fatty acids rock the world!

I like when recipes are customizable because whenever you are missing something like say….strawberries, you can substitute them for any other fruit you do have, or would like. That is great for me as someone who always forgets something and then doesn’t want to go back out to get it.

I use my trustworthy food processor for most smoothies because my blender is the worst blender, ever. But you can use whatever you want; food processor, blender, your super cool Vitamix that I hate you for having…

    Smoothie is the answer to every mom who is always pressed for time preparing breakfast…Put everything together, a little of this and that, press the button and you have your breakfast in your tumbler…that you can sip on, on your way to work. I am loving the fruity flavors that I can use 😉

    This looks so good.
    Did you use old fashioned oats or quick cooking?Does it matter?
    I only have old fashioned oat on hand right now.

      I used old fashioned, I don’t think it would matter too much 🙂

    How many calories?

    • Samantha replied on — January 29th, 2012 at 12:26 pm

      About 208 calories per servings depending on the brands you use. I usually use quaker oats, bobs red mill flax and chobani greek yogurt!

    Do you cook the oats first?

    • Samantha replied on — January 29th, 2012 at 4:33 pm

      I didn’t cook the oats. I suppose you could to make them easier to blend.

    I love it. I didn’t know you could put flaxseed meal in smoothies. Kevin accidentally bought some last week. Perfect!

    I make a flaxseed meal and oats smoothie every morning and not only is it healthy but it is also very filling. This holds me over until about 2pm. Then I have my greek yogurt with granola.

    My chiropractor advised me to grind my own flaxseeds as this proves to be more potent than using already ground flaxseed meal. You can freeze it for up to 2 or 3 days. I grind my flaxseeds with a coffee grinder (i don’t grind coffee beans) and it lasts for 3 smoothies (2 tablespoons per smoothie).

    I just made this smoothie and it was super yummy!

    I added 1 tablespoon of agave nectar for some sweetness. (It was a little bland for me without it.) I also halved the recipe so I could make it in my Magic Bullet and take it on the go. Definitely a healthy and yummy smoothie I will make again. Thanks for sharing!

    Here’s my single serving version:

    1/2 cup frozen mixed berries (I used a strawberry, raspberry, blueberry combo)

    1/4 cup old fashioned oats

    1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt

    1 cup lowfat milk

    2 tablespoons flax seed meal

    1 tablespoon agave nectar (without it the smoothie was too bland for me)

    *Note if you’re using fresh fruit, add 1/2 cup ice.
