It is a very cold and windy day (hopefully the last cold day until next winter) but I am still loving my smoothies. Especially as some awesome fuel after a strength training workout!
I had some pears that needed to be used and lately I have been loving them in smoothies, so I figured this would be a great time to try out this recipe I saw. It was also perfect because I had recently bought a larger tub of yogurt to add to my smoothies. With the oats, this smoothie keeps you satisfied which is perfect for breakfast. I added some protein powder and drank this smoothie after lifting.
This recipe was adapted from here:
- 1/2 pear
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (I used So Delicious)
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup GF rolled oats
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp stevia
- Optional: 1/2 – 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Sunwarrior)
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Adding some spinach to this smoothie would also be a great idea for a green smoothie as a way to sneak in some veggies and get some extra vitamins!
Unfortunately, there is no picture. I took this smoothie with me to the gym and didn’t realize it would taste so good until I drank it on my way home with the sun already setting (not an ideal time to take a picture of this delicious smoothie). I’ll definitely get a picture next time I make it though 🙂 Until then, I highly recommend this recipe!
