A delicious way to use some overnight oats – try this super easy and very tasty healthy oatmeal smoothie for breakfast to get your prebiotics and feel great for the rest of the morning! You’ll only need 4 easy to find ingredients.
I admit. If you had told me to drink a smoothie made from soaked oats, orange, banana and cinnamon a year ago I would say:
“You drink that disgusting mess.” (such a gentle heart)
But as many of us know from cutting our own bangs – You live and you learn.
(I will not provide a picture of how I cut my bangs WAAAYYYYY too short when I was 20 trying to look cool, but ended up looking like something’s so wrong with me. Really, you’d feel sorry)…
Well, this prebiotic smoothie is another surprise of the year (I had many surprises of the year like that I like raw vegan food). Okay, of last year, because I made this healthy drink for the first time last year. And I’m still making it.
Now, thanks to my sister and her husband, this smoothie is parfait (no it’s not a parfait dessert, it’s just so perfect that you have to say the word in French).
Let me give you a little history lesson.
So first it was just banana with overnight oats and a lil’ bit of water blended together. This was pretty good.
Then we added orange. This step made the whole thing about a million times more delicious and super super fresh.
But then my brother in law suggested we add some cinnamon. Now we’ve got a twist in the story.
Cinnamon? What does he even know? After all he doesn’t eat ANY salads and I’m pretty sure his taste buds have retired.
I tried his suggestion anyway, because I try everything.
Now. Let me tell you: I have so much more respect for my brother in law and his taste buds. Because this smoothie is even more perfect with a little bit of cinnamon. Who knew.
