So what happens when you buy a 3 lb. container of strawberries? You eat them non-stop before they go bad. And try to find new ways to eat them without going crazy. And that’s where this recipe was born.

This is a pretty interesting smoothie – it’s not very smooth per say….but it is good – and filling. Which is important.

Here’s what you’ll need: oatmeal, strawberries, blueberries, a banana, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Oh, and a blender or food processor. I had to go the food processor route – my blender broke in the move!

Alright…..throw everything into the food processor: 1 banana, 2 cups of strawberries (about 10 strawberries), ½ c. blueberries, ½ cup of oatmeal, 1 cup of coconut milk, ¼ t. vanilla extract, ¼ t. salt. Blend that baby up! Let it go for a while — to help it be a little bit more smooth.

This makes 4 cups – 2 servings. Yum.

  1. Love smoothies! I’ve never tried them with coconut milk, great idea 🙂

    • This is my first one trying oatmeal – really different but a nice change from the norm! What kind do you normally make?? I’m always trying to get new ideas!

  2. where are the cha cha cha chia seeds!!! Maybe using oatmeal is enough-
    If you have extra strawberries, I hull them, then freeze- individually on top of the stuff that is in the freezer- then when frozen put them in a baggie – this way they freeze individually- If you put the raw ones in a baggie then freeze, they may be in a clump- but it is still very easy to whack them apart. And if you use them for smoothies – you won’t need to use ice! and baking with frozen berries is fine too!
