Hearty Fruit & Oat Blast

48

Here is a way to get more bang for your breakfast in the morning! I love a good hearty bowl of homemade oatmeal, but I usually don’t have the time to cook or I don’t feel like dealing with the clean up. Those little instant oatmeal packages have way too much sugar. I’ve found a great way to incorporate my oatmeal into my morning Blast and have discovered this hearty fruit & oat concoction.

Oatmeal is a great cholesterol-reducing food. It contains soluble fiber, which decreases the amount of bile reabsorbed by the intestines and reduces the amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream. Plus, it has a ton of vitamins and protein. Now add that to everything a fruit and veggie NutriBlast has to offer and you’ve got a super-healthy and totally delicious combination!

Strawberry-Smoothie

Check out this tweak to a fruit Nutriblast that adds wholesome oatty goodness:

  • 1 Cup of strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 Banana
  • ½ Cup of old fashion oats
  • ¼ Cup of raw almonds
  • 1 Cup of low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 2-3 Ice cubes
  • Water to line

Add all ingredients to the tall NutriBullet cup and extract until smooth.

Now I’m getting my fruit with my oatmeal in one drink. What could be more convenient than that?  There are so many different combinations. Peach is another one of my favorites with this combination too.  What fruit do you like on your oatmeal? Give it a try and come up with your own favorite concoction. Please feel free to take creative liberties; the possibilities are endless!
