Can you say satisfied? That is how you will be feeling once you’ve downed this thick and creamy beauty. No shame if you grab a spoon to scrape down the sides. I felt none when I did it. 😉
So the creamy part is courtesy of my favourite source of probiotics, thick, delicious Greek yogurt. What are the benefits of probiotics? I could write a paper on them, so to summarize, scientific evidence suggest that live bacteria (probiotics) can treat and even prevent illnesses related to your digestion. When your digestion is good, most everything else is good too. Yay, probiotics!
For the berries, I simply used a frozen organic brand that I’ve been using in my smoothies for ever. Tried and true, they are a great way to add freshness and sweetness to your blend.
Now what makes this a ‘breakfast’ smoothie? Oats! That’s right. I can’t believe I’ve never tried this before. So incredible. A great way to add substance to an average smoothie. This truly makes it worthy of the meal title. Breakfast smoothies with oats for the win!
To add some bonus nutrition points, I supplemented with this berry flavoured Hemp Protein from North Coast Naturals. Can I say what a great company they are? Not only did they generously send out an box of goodies for me, they also hosted a great giveaway to help celebrate The Honour System’s first anniversary. Thanks guys!
We tried this powder two ways. Joe did taste test with it mixed with only water. He drank it and said he would again, for the nutrition, but didn’t really love it. In this creamy mixture, however, it blended in perfectly.
I loved the consistency and flavour of this smoothie. It tasted decadent somehow. Probably the creaminess of the yogurt. With the warmer weather coming, and I’ve been promised that it is indeed coming, these will be the types of breakfasts I’ll enjoy over comfort type breakies like oats or pancakes.
- ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
- ½ cup water
- 1 ½ cups blueberries, frozen
- ½ cup of quick oats, certified gluten free if necessary
- 2 tbsp hemp protein -I used North Coast Naturals berry flavoured- optional
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Add more water if needed
