#MeatlessMonday: Creamy Oatmeal Berry Smoothie

This morning for Meatless Monday I tried Strawberries n Cream smoothie inspired by a recipe on GreenPlateRule.com.



Into my blender went: coconut milk (this kind), ground flax seeds, coconut oil, quick oats, banana, strawberries, oatmeal, ice cubes, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.

The texture was indeed creamy. The taste was reminiscent of the Capt'n Crunch Crunch Berries cereal I enjoyed in my youth, except unsweetened.

Will today forever be remembered as "that one time I put oatmeal in my smoothie" or will I try it again?Totally! Oats are super good for you. I love that they are packed with fiber that helps me stay full longer and keeps things moving inside.

Thinking about putting oats in your smoothie? Here are some other recipes:
