Yogurt Breakfast Smoothie

I make one of these shakes for breakfast almost every morning. Sometimes I make extra for a quick snack mid-morning too. The intent of this is something filling, but healthy. Sometimes I will sometimes mix in 1t of some kind of protein powder (e.g., whey powder) if I need the extra filling nature of protein. Be mindful of how much protein powder is added as it can make the shake very filling -- I used to to 1T but that was far too much. As a note, I used to mix with a hand blender wand. I found that did not give the smoothie the same fluffiness, but it was passable.

Directions

  1. Add those ingredients, in order, into a blender. The order prevents splashing and also helps things like the cinnamon to mix well.
  2. Start blending on slow until it is all mixed. Then blend on progressively higher speeds until you are blending on the fastest speed. Blend on high for about a minute. This aerates the smoothie and gives it a "fluffiness".
  3. Pour into glass and enjoy!

I used frozen bananas & added a little ice. I used Strawberry Yogurt & I did add the strawberries. This is a healthy way to start your day & my kids ate it up!

Surprisingly this is pretty good. I was a little concerned on what it would be like with the oatmeal. Sydney is right though -- it needs more of a chill. Next time I may make it and then chill it for a little while or add a few crushed ice cubes. I didn't add any strawberries, as the banana I used was huge. I also used fat free milk, and fat free yogurt to cut back on the calories, plus I added a packet of Splenda to add a bit of sweetness since I didn't put in the strawberry. Still - very good and filling! Made for I Recommend Tag Game.
