Peaches and Cream Oatmeal Smoothie

The last couple of days have been wonderful – weather wise. The skies cleared, and it was actually in the 40’s. Productive for getting outside and finishing up yard work leftover. The blueberry bushes are putting on the first signs of spring, the first new leaves are budding! Which means it is time to start planning for summer 🙂 Alistaire was having a lot of fun, mobile and digging in the beds –

Walker was being a big boy – he went and got “his” rake and started raking up leaves. That made me so proud of him, he really loves gardening. I am SO not denying him a chance to rake 😉

The other morning I took Walker and Alisatire out to coffee while we waited for our oil to be changed. Thankfully the dealership is just across the street from Starbucks. Which might be a big reason I like that dealership 😉 Walker was contemplating his donut, which he ate the entire thing. Yummers. I enjoy taking them out for Mom & Son outings, they are great companions.

But I digress, back to what I was supposed to be talking about – the drink of the day!

Pinterest is always full of overnight/refrigerator oat recipes…which I cannot say I like personally. I happen to like my oatmeal cooked. But it did cross my mind that maybe I would like oats in a smoothie. The secret is soaking the oats overnight,  plumping them up. A quick blend in the Vitamix and off you go – with a bowl of drinkable oatmeal 😉 Fair warning – while delicious, you will notice the texture of the finely ground oats. I liked it, will you? You never know!

  1. Yum! I would love this. And it looks pretty, too.

  2. Love the cup, you are SO from Oak Harbor! 🙂 I am definately going to try this.

  3. Having this one for my morning drink in a few hours………..so fresh and I love cinnamon with the peaches. May add in some kale too. Thanks Sarah!

  4. Ooh that sounds really good! I’ve had oatmeal ice cream before and I loved it so I know I’d love this. I’d use apples though because I don’t like peaches unfortunately. I agree with you…I don’t like cold refrigerator oatmeal…it has to be hot!!

  5. I have made the same thing last Summer! thanks!

  6. I do love overnight oats, and I have put raw oatmeal in smoothies, but never made the connection. You are really helping me today Sarah. I may need more coffee. 😉

  7. That’s a really great way to get a healthy and hearty breakfast all in one!
