Yummy stuff...

I meant to share this recipe with you guys ages ago. I found it on Pinterest when the boys were poorly recently. With high temperatures they were off their food. This smoothie was a healthy way of getting them eating. 

Now I just make it as a snack because it is just so yummy...

Ingredients:

1 cup quartered strawberries

1 sliced banana

1/4 cup raw almonds

1/2 cup of oats

1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt

1 teaspoon of honey


Then stick all in a blender...
 


And blend like your life depends upon it...

Simple as.

Then drink, like your life depends upon it!

Enjoy...

  2. I am definitely pinning this - I love a good smoothie! My guy has been sick this week and I tried to get one into him (had some spinach snuck in there which I find is very easy to "cover up" with enough fruit) but he still didnt want it. I like that this has honey and oats in there for extra goodness when they aren't eating much else...

    1. I honestly have no idea but I imagine not much as the yogurt was a low fat and the rest is just oats, fruit, nuts and honey :)

    2. Just checked the yogurt and a quarter of a tub was 64 calories, no idea about the rest :)

  9. Hi, Sian. I was just wondering if you make too much to drink in one serving, can this be kept in the fridge until you're ready to drink it?

    1. oh yes I have no idea how to calculate the calories. I guess it depends on the type of yogurt used. With it being natural yogurt and honey and rest being fruit and oats the calories cant be too high :)

    thanks,

  16. Made this am...my yogurt had froze, so I had to add almond milk to get it to go, but plugged into my calorie counter, and got 356 calories per serving. If you delete the added almond milk, then delete 40 calories per serving. Yummy and filling! Thanks!
