1 cup orange juice (preferably the good stuff, like the not-from-concentrate orange juice)
2 tablespoons steel cut oats or oatmeal
3/4 cup 2% or full-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
3 cups baby spinach leaves
1 1/2 cups crushed ice
- Combine ingredients in the jar of your blender and blend. You will probably need to run it through twice. Serve immediately.
- Makes 1 giant smoothie, 2 smaller smoothies, or 3 snack-sized smoothies.
nutrition information (for 2 servings using 2% greek yogurt):
This also has 211% of your Vitamin A, 116% of your Vitamin C, 37% Calcium, and 19% of your iron–not too bad for a snack!
Tip: To help your blender out, you can soak the oak groats in the orange juice overnight (either in the jar of your blender or in in a glass). This will make it easier to blend and will also eliminate a lot of the grittiness from the oats.
