Summertime Smoothies: Blueberry, Oatmeal, and Honey Breakfast Smoothie

blueberry, oatmeal, and honey smoothie

When you're too rushed, too tired, or too lazy to make yourself a healthy, balanced breakfast, make this blueberry, oatmeal, and honey breakfast smoothie. It's got everything you need to kick start your day: fiber, protein, whole grains, vitamins, antioxidants, and frothy deliciousness. And it can be made in about two minutes.

Who said Mondays weren't happy?

This breakfast smoothie is also delicious with strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries.

1 cup milk of your choice (I prefer vanilla soy milk or almond milk)
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup blueberries
1/2-1 teaspoon honey
A couple of dashes of cinnamon
A few pieces of ice

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and frothy. Add more milk if you prefer it thinner.

This is the second smoothie in my Summertime Smoothies series. Don't forget last week's: Cinnamon-Spiked Cherry and Banana Smoothie.
