Raspberry Oatmeal Smoothie
Ha Ha. I found a new way to hide oatmeal in my kids' food. The idea came to me today, as they requested an ice cream sundae. I do not allow my kids to eat too many sweets, and like most parents prefer them to eat healthy snacks. Knowing that they love smoothies I set upon this task immediately. They are sitting before me now gobbling it up. Just don't tell them.
Here's the recipe.
2 cups of precooked and flavored oatmeal- I flavor mine with cinnamon, vanilla, a pinch of sea salt, and brown sugar (to the taste)
2 cups frozen raspberries
1 cup frozen pineapple
2 Tbsp. honey
Blend until smooth and serve immediately.
