Summertime Smoothies: Blueberry, Oatmeal, and Honey Breakfast Smoothie

blueberry, oatmeal, and honey smoothie

When you're too rushed, too tired, or too lazy to make yourself a healthy, balanced breakfast, make this blueberry, oatmeal, and honey breakfast smoothie. It's got everything you need to kick start your day: fiber, protein, whole grains, vitamins, antioxidants, and frothy deliciousness. And it can be made in about two minutes.

Who said Mondays weren't happy?

Blueberry, Oatmeal, and Honey Breakfast Smoothie
Makes 1 serving
Print recipe only here.

This breakfast smoothie is also delicious with strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries.

1 cup milk of your choice (I prefer vanilla soy milk or almond milk)
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup blueberries
1/2-1 teaspoon honey
A couple of dashes of cinnamon
A few pieces of ice

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and frothy. Add more milk if you prefer it thinner.

This is the second smoothie in my Summertime Smoothies series. Don't forget last week's: Cinnamon-Spiked Cherry and Banana Smoothie.

I often put oats in my smoothies for staying power. I love the bulk (without the cals) that they add!

Do the oats make it clumpy? Just wondering....

The Food Hunter said...

I tend to put oats in my smoothies too. Now I will need to try the honey.

I have never tried oatmeal in my smoothies. And this is perfect timing because I have a whole bunch of blueberries right now, they've been on amazing sale. And my daughter doesn't want to eat anything except smoothies.

Dear Susan, you just made my day with this recipe. :-) I've been wanting to make smoothies lately, but just couldn't settle on something that sounded amazing. This. THIS sounds amazing. :-)

Juliana said...

Wow, lovely smoothie for breakfast...love the idea of oatmeal in it :-)

Abby said...

I can handle this! I freeze all my blueberries early in the spring. Can I use them - instead of adding ice - or should I still add a few cubes?

Pauline said...

It's like blueberry oatmeal, but drinkable!

I use oat bran in some of my breakfasts. Will it work with similar results in this smoothie?

Pam @ Best cookware reviews said...

Monday sure are good, if you are drinking yummy smoothie like this. I have not tried smoothie with oatmeal ever so this is unique and sound much healthier, thanks for sharing.

The oats are a great idea! I never think to add any type of grain to a smoothie, so I'll have to try this.
