 Very Berry Breakfast Smoothie | My Little Gourmet

If I let Arik pick his own breakfast he would most likely choose to just drink 5 or 6 glasses of milk and not eat anything. With this thought in mind, I decided to come up with a breakfast in a glass for him. This way he gets everything he needs to start his day and he can drink it all through a straw, which, of course, makes him very happy. It also makes me very happy because it takes about 5 minutes to prepare and there’s enough smoothie for me as well.

I used frozen berries for our smoothie, so if you use fresh you may want to add some ice cubes before blending so you get a nice cold smoothie. If your little ones prefer it sweet be sure to add 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey. Depending on how thick you like your smoothies just increase or decrease the amount of milk until you get the consistency you want. Cheers!

  1. Stupid question, but what kind of oats do you use? This sounds so yummy! I have yet to use any oats in my smoothies!

    • That is not a stupid question at all! I used what are most similar to quick cooking oats, but I bet you could use just about any kind. Old-fashioned and steel-cut may add a little crunch, but some like that. :) I hope this helps!
