I wrote a little about some of my tummy struggles a little while ago, around the time I had my gallbladder removed. Since then, I’ve been on the yogurt struggle bus.
Honestly, I’ve probably been on it forever and I’m just paying more attention now.
My standard breakfast, since I was 22, has been yogurt, fruit and granola.
Lately, I’m less interested in chewing. haha. Sometimes that happens though, yah know? I don’t really have the time to sit down and eat breakfast, not even while I’m working. So, I’ve been rocking the smoothie! It’s been pretty great, actually. but I found that the dairy in the yogurt was still really bugging me. I found a great non-dairy yogurt and thought I’d share my little, non-specific, super simple recipe with you!
Please forgive my 5:45am lighting in my window-less kitchen. 🙂
You could totally change up the ingredients in this; and ice would make it more … granulated? icey? smoothie-y?
I start by putting the frozen mixed berries in.
I use about… that many. It’s two shakes of the bag, usually, depending on how hungry I am. Then I add in a broken up banana and about 1/2 a cup of oatmeal.
This oatmeal is not cooked – it’s just straight up dried oatmeal. Then I add about 1/4 cup of flax seed.
over which I pour about a cup of the star of today’s show: Good Karma Dairy-Free Probiotic Drinkable Yogurt (the strawberry kind) and about 1/4 cup of Chocolate Almond Milk. You could probably do not chocolate, buuuuut… I’d rather have the chocolate. #letsbereal
It looks really gross until you start blending it up:
I love this color! And the taste is super delicious!
I usually make a little too much, so I store the extra in a mason jar for the next day, that way I don’t have to make breakfast every morning:
That’s it! Easy-peasy lemon-squeezy!
This is, by far, my favorite breakfast. I have a 30 minute commute to work, so being able to drink my breakfast is a great time saver. And since I’ve switched to this non-dairy yogurt, I’ve had absolutely no troubles!
I’m really excited to try other combos as simple as this one. What are your favorite smoothies made out of?
