Berry Berry Good.

I love smoothies. I was obsessed when I lived in Florida, something that probably had more to do with the painfully oppressive 100-degree heat coupled with 100% humidity a stifling 300 days out of the year. Smoothie for breakfast, smoothie for a snack, smoothie and a sandwich for lunch, meet a friend at Smoothie King before a workout...just a normal Tuesday for me!

I've calmed it down a bit since moving to a place that has real seasons.

However, when I've eaten my traditional Lindsay Breakfast of Way Too Much Oatmeal 20 days in a row and we have a high of 80...I feel the familiar whisper of the blender call my name.


Hey, there Ninja Blender. Good to see you can still wake the neighbor children and make my dog pee herself a little with your morning song.

Funny business aside, this smoothie is my go-to for an "I want to get away with eating breakfast all day" mentality. Me gusta.

Berry Morning Smoothie

1 c. almond milk
1-1.5 c. frozen berries (depending on how much smoothie you want)
1/3 c. raw oatmeal
1 small container strawberry yogurt (think kid's sized)
3 tbsp. peanut or almond butter
1 banana (or 3/4 of a banana because you have to share with your kid, if you're anything like me)

Put all the ingredients in the blender in the exact order they're listed below. It seems stupid, but if you put the oats on top (like I accidentally did this morning), you have wet oats and oat dust everywhere. Let the yogurt and peanut butter weigh them down.

Blend it. If you find that it's too thick, add more almond milk and keep blending.


Yes, I'm aware that it makes a TON of smoothie. I basically just drink my breakfast until it's time for lunch on smoothie days. That's the best part of smoothie days...they're the gift that keeps on giving.

These days you're more likely to see her running after her toddler than running a meeting, but she does her best to find time to create new recipes, come up with fun activities for her daughter, and write about the craziness that is life in the Sweeting house.
