Chew on This | Crazy Cooking Challenge - Smoothies


It's that time again! 

Time to search the web for a recipe that speaks to us.
Re-create that recipe and share it here with all of you.

This month - Smoothies!

Strawberry season came early, early, early this year. So when we took
a trip to the orchard two days ago to pick up some fresh goodness, we were told that
the picking season was just about finished.

The kids and I grabbed as many strawberries as our hands (and buckets)
could hold. We were greedy and unstoppable.

They're so delicious! And perfect for Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothies.
I found a simple recipe at Money Saving Mom.

While the kids were still sleeping this morning I made this healthful recipe.
It was love at first sip.


Here's the recipe:
Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie
(recipe via Money Saving Mom)
1 C ice
1/2 C strawberries
1/2 C plain yogurt (I used Greek yogurt)
1 frozen banana
1/2 C old-fashioned rolled oats
1 T honey (I used agave nectar)
1 C milk (I used almond milk)

Place ice and strawberries into your blender. Add the remaining ingredients on top and blend until completely smooth. Serve immediately. Serves 2-4.


  1. Your recipe sounds a lot like mine! Great minds think alike. I will have to give it a try!

  2. This is the 2nd smoothie I've seen with oatmeal! Sounds delicious!


  3. I plan to go strawberry picking tomorrow morning and I think I'll have to make this smoothie. Does the oatmeal add a lot of texture to the smoothie?

    I'm CCC #5

  4. I can't wait to go pick in September some berries. I have vowed to make smoothies once a day all summer long, breakfast or a dinner substitute on hot summer days and I can't wait to try ALL of the Crazy Cooking Challenge recipes from this month. Thanks so much for participating.

  5. Strawberries are the best! I love the addition of oatmeal too :)

    I stumbled, pinned, tweeted, and FB'd your entry!


  6. Love the idea of oats in a smoothie, sounds delicious.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my CCC entry: Mango Melon Banana & Chia Smoothie.
