Low fat Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal Smoothie


          Smoothies are a big thing in our house..espically when the weather gets warmer..Not that we've hit that part yet,but it's good to be prepared! 

Yesterday I spotted this recipe and quickly walked into the kitchen to whip it up for the boys and I. We loved it and I will be making it often. I used all low fat ingredients but feel free to use whatever you like. I also imagine you could switch the extract up aswell..instead of vanilla maybe try a small amount of banana or coconut. You could also toss in frozen bananas or blueberries!

Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal Smoothie

1 cup Frozen Strawberries
1/2 cup Vanilla Yogurt
3/4 cup Milk
1/2 cup Quick Cooking Oats
1 tsp. Vanilla extract

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. It might take a few tries to get it all whizzed up and you might need to stir a few times to make sure the frozen strawberries and oatmeal are completely blended and smooth.

Yield: 2 big servings or 3 smaller
