Strawberry Deliciousness

It's a double post kind of day! A couple weeks ago I was craving a strawberry milkshake with Haagen Dazs ice cream. Mmmmm....visions of summer, warm weather, sunshine...oh wait, it's February in Chicago *snap back to reality*.

I decided to make a smoothie instead, and after some research online through different recipes I came up with this which is a combination of a few different methods.

1/4 cup uncooked plain old-fashioned oatmeal
1 container Greek yogurt, about 5 or 6 oz.
1/4 cup milk
1 or 2 handfulls of frozen strawberries
honey to taste (optional)

Blend just the oatmeal in a blender to get it chopped up, just for about 15-20 seconds. Add everything else and blend until smooth. So easy!

Of course if you are trying to keep it healthy, use low or nonfat yogurt and milk. I prefer to use vanilla flavored nonfat Greek yogurt, from Trader Joe's. You can also use plain, or honey flavor, or whatever you like. If you use a flavored yogurt you don't really need the honey. Same goes for the berries - use frozen blueberries, raspberries, whatever. Yum!
