Always on the lookout for something new to try to change up my breakfast routine, I have seen many different recipes for smoothies using oats or other grains soaked overnight but never given them a go.
I used to love anything that had oats in it especially porridge but after much trial and error have found that my body really does not tolerate oats well.
This has lead me to search out many different alternatives to oats, especially for a delicious winter breakfast when you feel like you need something really substantial to start your day.
Lately I have been experimenting with some new products.
The muesli contains all natural ingredients like rice bran, rice flakes, pepitas, linseeds, buckwheat and so on. It is really nice warm with stewed fruit and yoghurt in the morning and i find it keeps me going until lunch.
Anyway, back to today's scrumptious smoothie.
It all starts the night before.
In your blender container, put a scoop of the muesli (i just use a protein powder scoop) and a tablespoon of flaked almonds or other seeds or shredded coconut or a mix of these. Add about 150 ml almond & coconut milk (or whatever milk you prefer- I just really like this blend) - stir and put in the fridge overnight.
In the morning add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. It will be luxuriously thick and pastel pink and if you like you can scoop it out with spoon.
Insanely delicious. i can't wait for breakfast time to come around tomorrow!!
Give it a try.
