Healthy Summer Smoothie Recipe

I have a confession to make….

I’m not a huge fan of smoothies! Over the years, I have periodically tried different flavors and varieties but never have been quite fond of them.  My sister, on the other hand, is a huge fan and uses her blender daily to mix up a batch for her and her children. 

Caring for a new baby, a home, a husband and two dogs doesn’t leave a ton of time for prepping, cooking and eating a home cooked meal these days; this is where my latest smoothie attempt came into play. Trying to cook a hot meal, or even eat it for that matter, while feeding, burping, changing and soothing a baby just isn’t happening!  I need something quick, easy, healthy and fulfilling, so I began to experiment with fruit we purchased at the Raleigh State Farmer’s Market this week.  

summersmoothieI love the texture and taste of this smoothie and am excited I found a concoction that actually hits the spot! Not only is it tasty but the rolled oats have a lot of added benefits. 

  • Help to keep you feeling full and satisfied longer
  • High levels of fiber, low levels of fat
  • Contains the highest protein level of any grain
  • Helps improve cholesterol
  • Oatmeal is a galactagogue, which helps to increase milk supply in breastfeeding mothers
  • Tastes great and adds texture

You can substitute any fruit that you prefer or have on hand but I love the way the peach, blueberry and banana taste together.  It also would be great with almond or soy milk as a substitute! Let me know what you think in the comments below, on Facebook or sending an email to 

Until next time,
