This quick and easy breakfast smoothie will help you start your day out right. Loaded with soy milk, porridge, a whole ripe banana and some frozen strawberries.
For a finer texture, first process the oats in the blender till fine, and then follow with the remaining ingredients.
Used different ingredients. I absolutely love smoothies!! They are one of my favourite breakfast items....except I made this one for my lunch today. I love the oatmeal in it, but think that 1/2 a cup is a little too much. I used quick cooking oats since that's what I normally have on hand and substituted a container of strawberry yoghurt for the strawberries. I have not been able to find a decent batch of strawberries yet this year. They are not sweet for some reason, so I'm a little hesitant to buy them. Anyway, the oatmeal made this smoothie VERY filling and I too omitted the vanilla and sugar since I used vanilla flavoured soy milk. Great new find...thanks Astrophe. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. FABULOUS! I have never tried a smoothy with oatmeal! Who'da thunk! Well this is great. I also tried a variation of using fresh juice in place of the soymilk. Fresh pineapple juice was especially yummy! Also, when you use juice in place, no sugar or vanilla is needed. Thanks for this great idea. I am thinking of trying wheat flakes too! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. Great recipe! I personally don't like to add sugar so dropped that (the banana has enough natural sugar) and also like to increase the protein content in my shakes so use a Soy Protein powder. I found one without flavouring or additives which works perfectly for shakes etc at the following site http://www.purenutrition.com.au/soy-protein-isolate-1kg.html Enjoy! - 24 Sep 2009
