Oatmeal Smoothie

by Lucinda Scala Quinn

1 cup ice cubes
1 cup frozen fruit
 1/2 cup dry oatmeal
1 ripe banana
1 tbsp. honey
3/4 cup coconut water
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

Start with putting in the ice first into a blender or food processor

frozen fruit, I used strawberries

dry oatmeal



coconut water (mine had pulp in it)

I started mixing it and then realized . . . . 

I almost forgot to add the yogurt!!  Add it in and mix well, it will probably take about a full minute or a little over until all the ingredients are well blended

Pour into your favorite mug, sit back and enjoy!

I happened onto this recipe by accident today.  I was looking for a certain flower on the Martha Stewart website and instead saw Lucinda Scala Quinn making this yummy smoothie for breakfast.  Oatmeal is filling and keeps you going for a couple of hours in the morning, so why not put it in a smoothie??  I made it for our after dinner treat and my meat and potatoes man thoroughly enjoyed it as much as I did.  It's thick, rich and oh so satisfying and I can't wait to have another one but I'll have to wait until the morning. Have a great evening and remember to savor every moment.



  1. Okay I am so making these tomorrow. No yogurt but I have Kefir and no honey but I have Agave syrup. Sounds good.

  2. Elaine, I was so excited to have one for breakfast this morning. I'm still running on well satisfaction! I don't know what Kefir is, I'll have to google it. I never used Agave syrup but coming from you, it must be good and healthy. Let me know how yours turns out. Have a good day!

  3. Num!
    Now that looks like a way that I can enjoy rolled oats :)

    I love steel cut oats, but because I think that my parents O.D.-ed us on oatmeal.. I've not really made it much as an adult.
    Yippee... thanks to you, I now will have a way to eat that oatmeal.

    Smiles :)
