Not Your Typical Berry Smoothie - Williams-Sonoma Smoothie Week!

I know...it's not Foodie Friday but it is Williams-Sonoma Smoothie Week so here's my contribution to the celebration.  

Yum...that's all I have to say about this yummy smoothie I whipped up for breakfast on Saturday. 

We had a lot to do and not much time for cooking so the freezer and pantry came to the rescue for a quick and delicious breakfast.

I was able to make this totally organic, thanks to berries we picked and froze this summer and an added bonus was the protein punch I gave it with the addition of...are you ready? Organic Whole Rolled Oats!   It was a risk throwing them in there because I wasn't sure if I'd end up with a gloppy thick mess but they blended up perfectly and added delicious flavor!


If you look closely, you can see the oats all blended up in that beautiful berry goodness.  



This quick and easy beauty kept us going from breakfast until mid-afternoon.

Here's the recipe in case you want to try it yourself.  This makes two generous smoothies.

Berry Oatmeal Power Smoothie

In a blender, combine:

2/3 cup Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
2/3 cup Blackberries (fresh or frozen)
2/3 cup Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup uncooked Organic Whole Rolled Oats
1 cup Organic Greek Yogurt
3/4 -1 cup Orange juice or more to taste
4 teaspoons Organic Honey
1 Tablespoon Organic Flaxseed Oil
6-8 ice cubes

Mix at high speed until well blended.  That's it!

What?  You don't have a blender?  Well, Christmas is coming so I can't think of a better time to ask Santa for one of these beauties from Williams-Sonoma.  Every kitchen needs one for whipping up everything from cool drinks to delicious soups and salad dressings.

Enjoy!

Thanks for popping by, I'd love to know if you try it.
