Smooth-a-licious!

I've been doing a lot of smoothies this past week because they are not only fast and help me get a well-rounded meal in, but they are also something I can 'eat' while I feed the baby.  I found a recipe on Martha Stewart's website that uses dry oats (I had on idea you could do that!) and I loved it but I've altered it some and then also sharing 2 more of my smoothie concoctions lately:

Oatmeal Raspberry Banana Smoothie
- 1 cup ice
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup coconut water

Peanut Butter Banana Oat-Milk Smoothie
- 1 cup ice
- 1 banana
- 1 or 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1 cup oat milk

Strawberry Banana/Orange Smoothie
- 1 cup ice
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1 cup orange juice

Optional: I use vanilla bean yogurt and then throw in a tablespoon of chia seeds or flax seeds with these shakes.

These all sound so yummy! And healthy! I love smoothies, thanks for sharing!

Hope you all like them, I don't use honey or sugar because I think the fruit is sweet enough but feel free to add those in for sweetness if you need it! :)

Interesting! I would have never thought to put oats in a smoothie! Sounds good though!

It's a quick way to get them in! Thanks Michelle! :)
