Since then they've been researching smoothie recipes. In the last 2 weeks we've tried 3 different smoothie recipes and plan on trying at least one more this weekend. They're on a mission to find THE best tasting smoothie recipes around. Of course, I'm on a mission to find smoothies that Amazing, Cosmo and Awesome would choose over a sugary dessert any day.
Which recipes have we tried? First we tried a blueberry oatmeal smoothie, then a strawberry orange smoothie and lastly a strawberry lemonade smoothie. Today we substituted mixed berries for blueberries in our oatmeal smoothie. The next recipe we plan on trying is a strawberry peach smoothie.
Of the four we've sampled, the mixed berry oatmeal smoothie has been, hands down, our favorite. Here is the recipe:
- 16 oz. mixed berries (blueberry, raspberry and blackberry)
- 6 oz. vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
- 1/3 cup of this mixture (1 cup sugar, 1 cup berry koolaid)
- Dump in the Ninja and blend.
Honestly, I can't wait to try the strawberry peach smoothie. I LOVE peaches. After that, I'll probably research a berry spinach smoothie. It'll be interesting to see how that goes over! I'm not reporting ingredients until EVERYONE has sampled this one. I've heard they're delightful though!
