Breakfast oat smoothie

I think I am addicted to the idea of smoothies for breakfast. They are quick, extremely filling and keeps you going for the rest of the day. On most days when I am hopping around on weekday mornings and rushing to make sure I don’t miss my bus to work, I turn to this smoothie.
Sometimes I bring berries into the story. Fresh or frozen raspberries, blueberries, strawberries.. any berries you like. Throw in a little bit of sugar. Whizz. And voila! your power packed smoothie is ready. Sometimes it is just a little bit of cocoa powder, topped with some nuts and grated chocolate. Delicious!

I know a lot of people who loathe the very idea of oats but to me this is an interesting way of getting oats into your routine. Makes for a fabulous drink when you don’t have the time to make a decent breakfast.

So pep up your crazy weekday mornings with this jazzy smoothie that is super quick and super easy.

You will need:

1 cup quacker oats
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of cocoa
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 cups of milk
slivered almonds (optional)
grated milk chocolate (optional)

Mix the oats and water and microwave for about 2-3 minutes. In a food processor, add the oats, milk, sugar and cocoa powder and whizz until smooth. If the consistency of the smoothie is too thick for your liking , add some more milk. Top with slivered almonds and some grated milk chocolate and serve.
