The Food Byte: Blueberry Oats Smoothie

Saturday, March 22, 2014

I love yogurt. I can eat yogurt without the add-ons (fruit etc) happily. The other day I was browsing recipe websites without an aim. I read a few recipes here and there, then stumbled upon an amazing picture of what looked like a glass filled with something violet. And lo and behold! I discovered the Blueberry Oats Smoothie.

It sounded great while reading and the recipe didn't ask for numerous ingredients. Blueberries are powerful health fruits- they are a powerhouse when it comes to antioxidants (so, pack them on!), strengthens bones to some extent, boosts memory,  keeps the eyes and heart healthy. We all know the benefits of yogurt and oats right?

This makes an excellent breakfast and keeps you full until lunch time (goodbye unnecessary snack cravings). Mum makes it for me every now and then and because it is delicious, I drink this in the evenings at times.


The blueberries themselves are so good to eat, I take a handful and stuff my mouth with it. Hello violet colored tongue! I got the ones from Carrefour. Spinneys has them too but I  found the produce at Carrefour to be a tad bit better.


Here's what you'll need.

Ingredients:

1 cup yogurt
1/2 cup oats (I used muesli instead)
1 cup fresh blueberries
1-2 tablespoon sugar (substitute with honey if required)
1 cup milk (I used Al Rawabi)

Method:
  1. Mix yogurt with muesli/oats. Keep in fridge overnight. This helps the oats/muesli to soften.
  2. The next day, put everything in the blender and blend.
  3. Then drink up.
It's that easy! It tastes great and is healthy too. 

Do you have a favorite you always make? Tell me about it! I may try it.

Yes, try Apple oats walnut smoothie. I would say it is the best combination I have ever tasted :D but it is better if u use unsweetend almond milk instead and maple syrup (if required)
