This super simple Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie is made with strawberries, bananas, oats and chia seeds. Packed with a ton of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, potassium and antioxidants this smoothie has perfect staying power to fill you up all morning (or afternoon) long.
You would think with all the time I spend in the kitchen, I would be able to make a recipe that is a little more fun and ‘themed’ for the start of Valentine’s Day week ❤️🍰❤️
Note to Self – get with it already!
The truth is that I actually didn’t even plan this smoothie to go with the festive holiday of love.
But I’m not going to tell anyone that. I am just going to go on and pretend that I have everything all lined up and my ducks nicely in a row, and that of course I am making themed Valentine’s Day food for the girls all week long.
And if you mean, make this Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie all week long, then I am SO on top of it.
I had this smoothie for lunch today, scratch that Parker and I had this smoothie for lunch today because as I was drinking my smoothie, Parker got all pissed at me because I didn’t make her one. She then stole it from me, drank about half of it before drooling back into the glass and then handed it back to me as if nothing had happened. Thanks babe!
Don’t worry, I totally polished the remainder of the smoothie off.
Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie Ingredients
This is one of the few smoothies that I make the girls where I am not sneaking in extra veggies or big handfuls of green leaf plants.
And come to think about it, maybe that is why it is so-friggin-delicious!
It’s so good you could probably pass this off as a milkshake.
Passing nutritious smoothies off as milkshakes works perfectly well until your little one finally has an actual milkshake. Then prepare yourself for getting the ‘mom, what the h-ll have you been giving me all of these years???’ look.
Not to say that I have ever done this… 🙈
This doesn’t mean that this delicious smoothie isn’t nutritious – made with strawberries, bananas, oats and chia seeds this smoothie is packed with a ton of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, potassium and antioxidants. The strawberries and bananas made it over the top tasty and the oats give it some staying power, so you won’t get hungry five minutes after you finish it off. Spiced with a little vanilla extract and sweetened with a drizzle of honey, this smoothie can almost be passed off as a milkshake… almost!
For all of you that are on-top of the holidays – here is my Pinterest page with some fun Valentine’s Day ideas for you.
For the rest of us, my local Target has Frozen or TMNT pre-made cards left. That is it! We better get cracking, it’s almost had-to-make-homemade-cards-cuz-there-wasn’t-anything-left time.
And for all of us, there is this bright PINK Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie that can/should be made everyday regardless if it’s Valentine’s week or just any other week.
A little glass of love is always welcomed around here 💞
