This Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie is just the thing you need to start the day off on the right foot. Here’s to tasty & healthy breakfasts!
Hey there party peeps! We love smoothies around here, in case you haven’t seen. Some of our favorites are this Strawberry Peach Smoothie with Oats, our Spinach Berry Smoothie, and a kid-favorite: the Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie!
If you’re looking for a way to incorporate more vitamins and nutrients to your diet, I have the smoothie for you! My Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie will fill your belly up with lots of good stuff. We have oats, ground flax, chia seeds (ch-ch-ch-chia!) oats and strawberries to name a few ingredients.
Let’s talk about the benefits of adding ground flax, chia seeds and oats to your smoothie.
I love these guys! They all have such great benefits, but here’s a quick breakdown:
Benefits of Ground Flaxseed:
Flaxseed is a great source of dietary fiber, manganese, vitamin B1, and the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, also known as ALA or omega-3. I like to buy the flaxseeds already ground, the powder incorporates easily into smoothies or protein shakes.
You can add ground flaxseed to anything. Soups, casseroles, tacos, just throw some in when cooking.
Benefits of Chia Seeds:
Chia seeds are loaded with protein, fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients. They are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet and I use them every chance I get!
Benefits of Oats:
Rich in a specific type of fiber called beta-glucan. This particular type of fiber is known to help lower levels of bad cholesterol.
You should have all of these in your pantry. They are good for your food storage as well. I love throwing them into my smoothies or protein shakes. You can also make Chia Seed Pudding with the chia seeds. It’s great for when you want a treat without all the calories and fat.
I’m not always in the mood to eat oatmeal the traditional way, so this oatmeal smoothie makes an appearance for breakfast about once a week!
