A while back I was looking for a smoothie recipe to make breakfast fast and easy. I had a hard time finding one I liked. The problem is I don’t like bananas. It seemed every smoothie that sounded good had bananas in it. So I took a couple different recipes and came up with my own. I also needed something that would keep me full till lunch. Here is what I came up with. I make it nearly every morning.
I switched from oatmeal to granola in my smoothies. It gives them a great nutty flavor. I have also been adding essential oils to my smoothie. I pick one according to what my body needs supported that day.
- 1/4 cup oatmeal or granola
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 3 oz milk
- 3 oz pineapple juice
- 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1 Tbsp sugar or honey
- 3 ice cubes
- 2-3 drops of the essential oil of your choosing.
Put oatmeal in blender and grind until fine. Add the rest of the ingredients except essential oil and chop ice (pulse) until completely chopped. Then blend for 30 seconds - 1 minute until smooth. Pour into a glass, add essential oils and stir. Enjoy.
If you are adding essential oils, it is important that you use a glass or a stainless steel cup. Also use a glass or stainless steel straw.
The oils I most often put in my smoothies are lemon, tangerine, orange, lime and citrus fresh.
