As a family, we just joined the Y. Dun…dun…dun….
With all that has been going on it our lives, taking the time to work out has gotten the short stick. Seriously, it’s crazy. So after a great recommendation for one of my BFF’s Courtney (i love you woman) I went for it and started a family membership at the YMCA. And I am SO glad I did. It has been great getting back into a good routine. Family fitness days are fun.
So as a result I am trying to be more stringent in eating a healthy breakfast. Insert this delicious Blackberry Smoothie…
- 2 cups frozen blackberries
- 1 banana
- 1 1/2 cups plain, non-fat yogurt
- 1 cup regular oats, soaked overnight
- honey, to taste
- oats as garnish (optional)
Soak the oats overnight in 1 cup of water and a little bit of lemon juice.
Add the frozen berries, the banana, the yogurt, and the oats to the blender. Blend until the mix reaches the desired consistency.
Sweeten with honey, if necessary.
Fill into glasses and sprinkle a few oats on top.
