Oats are better creamy. I'm positive that's why these oats work so well. Sure the flavors are great. Warm cinnamon & cool vanilla swirled together through tart yogurt right beside sweet chia studded strawberry jam is perfect and all, but it's the smooth creamy textures that make this a warm & satisfying bowl of everything you wanted this morning.Read More

Strawberry Quinoa Smoothie
KID FRIENDLY & COMES TOGETHER IN 15 MINS OR LESS!
- 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1 1/4 cup frozen or fresh strawberries
- 1 splash vanilla extract
- 2 ice cubes
If quinoa is not already cooked, place uncooked quinoa and water into a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer. Cover and let cook until all the water has absorbed (5 mins).
Add quinoa, milk, yogurt, berries, vanilla, & ice cubes to a high powdered blender. Blitz everything together until smooth. If your smoothie is too thick, add a splash of milk & blitz again until desired consistency is achieved. Pour into a glass & sip.
* The strawberries in this recipe can easily be replaced with your favorite berry. I personally love raspberries & blackberries here. The quinoa can also be replaced with oats, but won't contribute quite the same nutritional punch. Happy snacking!
