Getting Creative with the AM Oats

I have been enjoying my Dough Boy Smoothies so much that I decided to try some new flavors.  While exploring, I discovered that what I have been making is slightly different from the original.  I only use 1/2 cup of raw oats as opposed to 1 cup of oats.  I still use 1 cup of Almond milk and have been forgetting about the cinnamon some nights.  That being said, the texture may be slightly different although just as fabulous!  With inspiration from Kath at Kath Eats Real Food, I tried a strawberry banana version this morning.

I began last night with…

 3/4 cup Almond milk

1/2 cup raw oats

1/2 banana

2 Tbsp Chia seeds

4 strawberries

1 tsp vanilla

I stirred and then stuck the mixture  in the fridge overnight.  In the morning, I added 1/4 cup Almond milk and a dash of cinnamon…then blended.  The smoothie was a little more runny than usual. I think next time,  I could do without the extra milk in the morning.  However, the strawberries were fresh and satisfying addition.

Enjoy your breakfast out of a fun bowl or mug and top with fresh berries and banana.  It makes the first meal of the day much more exciting!!!
