Pear Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Sick of smoothies?

Neither am I. Ever!

This smoothie is a good on-the-go breakfast and is filling with oatmeal thrown into it. It’s sweet and frothy and has veggies, fruits, calcium, protein, and grains! Plus it’s green, so you can hit the hipster fad right on the mark by putting this in a mason jar and walking your dog (cough, cough Sara!).



Pear Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie (makes enough for 2)

2 handfuls of spinach

1 cup of almond milk (sweetened or unsweetened is fine)

1 frozen banana

1 pear, washed and cored

1 handful oatmeal (about 3/4 cup)

water as needed


Directions: Blend and enjoy!

Tips: Blend your spinach and almond milk together first for a smoother consistency from the spinach. Also, let’s talk frozen bananas. Life-changing. George and I have a huge stock of frozen bananas on hand at any given time. My method is this: peel all of your bananas and put them on a cooling rack (such as one for baking) overnight (or at least for 3 hours). Then, I break them all in half (maybe just a weird habit…) and store them in a gallon ziplock in a freezer. Be sure that you peel before freezing, otherwise they really will be useless to you 🙂
