sip your oats - strawberry mango oatmeal breakfast shake

i still had my egg white omelette with cheese this morning, but this time i felt like trying out this oatmeal shake i've been hearing so much about instead of my usual bowl.  i had some frozen mangos and strawberries in the freezer so i threw about a cup of them into the blender.  then i added some non-fat plain yogurt, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and some rolled oats. (they're at the bottom!)

  fruity, creamy, and slightly sweet from the natural sugars. just right. (with a side of prenatal vitamin)

strawberry-mango oatmeal breakfast shake

the stuff:

  • 1 cup frozen fruit
  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats

do this:

  1. blend
  2. sip

 i'm such a fan! my smoothie was around 180-200 cals and made one full 8oz glass.  choose your one, two, or three fav fruits and blend away.  you could also use greek yogurt, but i find that it gives my smoothie a weird, bitter, sour cream-like after taste.  the plain yogurt works better and still has a high protein count, 11 grams.  enjoy this as part of your brekky or a snack. happy sipping.
