Amy's Super Yummy Berry Smoothie

Amy's Super Yummy Berry Smoothie

Ingredients:
30g oats
1 tbsp LSA
1 tsp cinnamon
120g mix of strawberries and blueberries
150g strawberry, blueberry, mixed berry, or vanilla yoghurt
250g skim milk

Method:
1. Put oats, LSA and cinnamon in TM bowl. Grind for 10 seconds on speed 8, or until desired consistency.
2. Add berries and blend for 20 seconds on speed 6.
3. Add yoghurt and milk and blend for 30 seconds on speed 8.
4. Serve.

Notes
I like to leave my oats a bit chunky, because the milk will soak into them after a couple of minutes.

I always use low fat/skim products because they froth more, and I love a frothy smoothie :-)

If you use frozen berries, make sure there aren't too many icy bits stuck to them. They may make the smoothie taste watery.

I never add sugar to my drinks, so, to me, this smoothie is sweet enough. However, some people who are used to more sweetness may like to add a dash of agave nectar or honey.

Variations
Replace the berries with a large ripe banana, and the berry yoghurt for banana or honey yoghurt. Honey is a good addition to this, if you like the extra sweetness.

thanks Amy :-) sounds delish. Of late I have been mixing up my breakfast meal, so its not so boring and mundane, and at least once a week I like a smoothie.

It looks very tasty and healthy.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Thanks Amy. Tried this and used frozen berries as that's all I had.
Very yummy and not watery (for my taste) at all.

Thanks for the feedback mcmich! I'm glad it wasn't watery with the frozen berries. I'm beginning to wonder whether my frozen berries just had too much ice stuck to them...   :-\
