This is an excellent start to your morning! I was a little hesitant about having oatmeal in my smoothie, so I decided to give it a little grind on it's own in the blender before adding the rest of the ingredients. I made the recipe as directed, using fresh blueberries and also used an entire 6 oz container of Light Fat Free French Vanilla Yogurt. It was so good, I wanted a second! Thank you, MsSally!
What a great way to get the day started! Taking some advice from the folks below, I blended the yogurt, orange juice and oats (I used quick oats) to chop the oats into a fine grain, then added the rest of the ingredients. The result was a fresh, fruity, thick and delicious smoothie. Thanks so much, Ms Sally! I'll be doing this a few times every week!
Another time I think I would blend the oatmeal a little before adding other ingredients, as another reviewer suggested. I added the whole container of a Yoplait blueberry yogurt, and fresh berries, since those are what I had. I added 5 heaping tbsp. of frozen orange juice concentrate, and probably 6 ice cubes. I also added a heaping tbsp. protein powder and a heaping tbsp. of oatmeal bran. The doc says I have to get my cholesterol down, so this is part of my attempt at eating more oatmeal. It was very filling and delicious!
