The LibertyDee Oatmeal Strawberry Smoothie

I did not originally intend to add recipes to this blog.  Obviously, I have changed my mind. What I will offer here is not gourmet cooking, it wont be creative and at times may even seem a little strange. But as I endeavor to get into shape and lose 50 pounds, I will be giving regular updates about what I eat and what I have cooked. My intention now, is that perhaps someone will find a meal or a snack that they may want to try inorder to help them on their own weight loss journey. Try at your own risk:

The LibertyDee Oatmeal Strawberry Smoothie

Put all of the following ingredients into a blender or “Magic Bullet” type of gadget:

  • 2 teaspoons of One Minute Quaker Oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup of low fat milk (I use 1 lactose free milk but you can use rice milk, coconut milk etc
  • 1/2 cup of water (I use tap water)
  • A handful of frozen Strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon of Peanut Butter ( this adds a little fat to help you feel full and a bit of protein)

Blend thoroughly and drink! If you find that the the chunkiness of the oatmeal bothers you you have two options:

1. Let the smoothie mixture sit for 5 minutes before blending. This allows the oatmeal to dissolve more.

2. Put less oatmeal

I find this smoothie will hold me over for a few hours. Let me know if you try it 🙂
