I get bored with oatmeal. Especially when the weather is hot and humid like is the norm at my house in the summertime. This summer when berries were fresh and I wasn’t feeling good about my swim suit I started drinking fruit and yogurt shakes for breakfast.
I didn’t go all out and add protein powder or anything like that. I simply opened my refrigerator and put together a cup of Greek yogurt (vanilla flavored), a handful of blueberries and tossed in a few strawberries. I added 5 pieces of ice and about 1/2 cup milk.
I pulsed the blender on the crushed ice button a few times and voila’! I really never intended to blog this little recipe of mine except that it is so dang tasty and really filling and I thought you might like to give it a try.
I realize that for the most part the fruit is now stowed-away frozen in the freezer, but that’s okay. The frozen fruit works equally well. I also tried cantaloupe that was almost past it’s prime and boy-oh-boy is it delicious! The weather is finally turning cooler and oatmeal may be back in style. But for me — I am shaking up the morning with fruit and yogurt!
Have a blessed week,
“Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.”
