Part 2 of 2: Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Smoothie
Easy Recipes for New Moms
As you all may remember, I am Kate, a toddler mom with a passionate for cooking healthy and easy meals for moms looking to eat well when they have their hands full of babies! Last month, I shared one of my favorite recipes for new Moms. Peanut Butter Energy Balls (aka Booby Balls!) are great as a one handed snack, energy booster, and can help with lactation.
Today I am sharing an absolute staple in our home for breakfast. It is filling and my kids love it too! Hope you enjoy.
NTK Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Smoothie
YOU WILL NEED:
- ½ c oats
- 1 big spoonful of plain full-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 c almond milk (or any milk you prefer)
- ¼ c raisins
- ½ frozen banana
- 1 tbs chia seeds (optional)
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Blend in your blender (a strong blender is needed to grind up the raisins; I use my vitamix). Add water or extra almond milk to get the consistency you desire. I like it thick!
**optional: add scoop of almond butter, leave out the Greek yogurt for a #dairyfree option. We also add 1 scoop of vanilla powder from time to time.
