Drink your oatmeal!

It's Friday and Day 5 of the Green Smoothie Challenge!  Are you loving it so far?

From mom telling you that oatmeal is a good breakfast because it "sticks to your ribs" to the many studies that, thanks to soluable fiber, oatmeal can help lower cholesterol, there are many reasons to start the day with a bowl of oatmeal.  But maybe you are low on time or oatmeal just isn't your thing.
The smoothie I am sharing today not only has greens but oatmeal, too!

My recipe for Overnight Steel Cut Oatmeal goes great in this smoothie :)

Oatmeal Smoothie
1/2 cup Overnight Oats
8 strawberries
1/2 cup almond milk, or milk of your choice
1-2 handfuls spinach
1 tbsp sunflower seed butter or nut butter

Blend all of the ingredients until smooth, adding more milk to thin to your desired consistency.
For best results use frozen strawberries.

I really liked the flavor of this one and, thanks to the oats and sun butter I was not hungry until lunch.
