Breakfast Blueberry Chia Oatmeal Smoothie

December 6, 2019

Perfect to start the day, this nutrient-dense smoothie made with blueberries, chia seeds and rolled oats will keep you satiated for a good few hours. It has 20 grams of natural, wholesome foods protein, exactly the way I like to get my proteins. I’m not a fan of protein powders, mostly because most of them are highly processed and most people consume way too much of protein. It’s almost impossible, to not consume enough protein if you eat a balanced diet and don’t skip any meals.

Let’s get back to the smoothie..

Ingredients You Will Need:

  • Almond milk (or any nondairy milk but I recommend avoiding soy)
  • Banana
  • Rolled oats (choose gluten-free if you are sensitive to gluten)
  • Almond butter
  • Chia seeds
  • Raw or local honey (substitute with maple syrup if vegan)
  • Cinnamon
  • Frozen blueberries

Nutrition and Health Benefits

The smoothie is packed with protein, fiber and antioxidants, as well as a variety of vitamins and minerals.

Rolled oats are a good source of fiber and will keep you satiated. Almond butter and chia seeds are great source of plant based proteins and healthy fats. Banana and blueberries are packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Cinnamon helps to balance blood sugar naturally.

Taste & Texture

It has a thick, creamy texture. Eat the smoothie with a spoon. This smoothie is like eating a dessert and is actually one of my favourite ones.
