Raspberry, Oatmeal and Yogurt Smoothie

I am always on the lookout for quick and simple ideas for our breakfasts and after school snacks. This Raspberry Oatmeal and Yogurt Smoothie recipe certainly fits the bill. And what kid doesn’t love a smoothie?
I love putting my blender to work – (I’ve blogged about it before in these recipes: Healthy Chocolate Dip, Homemade Apple Butter and Chocolate Hazelnut Spread and I can’t not include this awesomely easy 3 Minute Raspberry Sorbet recipe (even though I was using a different blender for that one).
When possible, I like to use greek yogurt in place of regular yogurt and I bet you could use almost any type of berry in this recipe and get great results.
- 1 cup ice
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon honey (or equivalent other sweetener)
- 1 cup juice or coconut water (I used almond milk)
- Add the oatmeal to the blender and pulse a few times
- Add liquid and yogurt to the blender, blend for a minute or two. (Make sure the oats are pulverized)
- Add remaining ingredients and blend on high power until all your ingredients are blended and smooth.

Jamie, this is lovely. It would be great if you linked it to Food on Friday: Shakes & Smoothies. The showcases from this Food on Friday have not yet been selected. This link will take you to my home page where you will find a sidebar with links to all the different Food on Fridays. So that I know you have linked and can be sure to pin to the board I have for each one, please do leave a short comment. Cheers
Hey Jamie! Make one for me too!
I had a cheap little Sunbeam food processor in college which I used to make healthy concoctions, including ones really similar to this with yogurt, oats, and fruit. My roomies thought I was weird….At last, reading your recipe (and the positive response to it), I feel validated! I'm sure your smoothies are delicious (your picture is enticing and artful, by the way…love it). Lynaea @ EveryDayBloom.com

This sounds really great! I especially like the addition of oatmeal to the recipe. Never tried that before so I will have to soon. Thanks for sharing!
this looks amazing! thanks for sharing!
This looks delish! Love making oatmeal smoothies for breakfast!
I am going to pin this. I have to try it out. It sounds delicious.
visiting from Sugar Bee Crafts link party. This smoothie sounds so refreshing right now – I also add oatmeal to mine. Such a great and easy addition.
I so need to try this for my littles!! One is especially picky and I keep telling myself to try to get him to try smoothies so I can get some better nutrition in him Thanks for a recipe I can try.
Thanks for sharing at Sharing Saturday!
This looks like a great idea for a nutritious and tasty breakfast. Pinning:)
This is so pretty and sounds delicious and healthy, too. We love smoothies, but I've not ever added ground oats. They would be a great addition and would help keep us full longer. Thanks for the idea!
What does the 4 hour fridge soak do?
I have been out working in the garden and this smoothie would sure taste good right now. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you again soon!
These are delicious! I realized after I started making these smoothies a few months ago that a 4 hour fridge soak is necessary to get the full effect of the oatmeal. I read it on The Yummy Life, and after I tried her recipes it really added to the flavor and now I Make my own with the same concept. They are also great to make ahead and freeze!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Looks so yummy. I will have to try out this recipe! Thanks!
The kids and I tried it. It's delicious! Thanks for sharing:)
Smoothies are great! We love them for breakfast..Pinned to try later 🙂
Yum! This looks delicious. I'll have to try it when I buy myself a blender 🙂
