I’m tired…

And I want to lay on the floor in a tutu. I’m serious.

One thing Stephanie and I have agreed upon is that it’s hard to function on caffeine. Ya, ya, ya, all our beyond healthy friends will say it gets better, and I am sure it does, but today we are tired!

My go-to smoothie this week has actually been one I read on Lauren’s Conrad’s website. She rules. It combines a smoothie and oatmeal. Woah woah, oatmeal? Yes! Keeps you full doesn’t it? Why not add it to a smoothie. I modified the original recipe, of course, but you can follow the Martha version too.

Oatmeal Smoothie

What You’ll Need

  • Vanilla protein powder – 1 scoop
  • 1/4 cup sliced frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 a frozen banana (I freeze bananas when I have some leftover at the end of the week. Slice and then freeze)
  • 1/8 cup oats (whatever you have on hand, I have gluten free)
  • Water of Coconut Water – whatever you have on hand. I don’t measure, I just pour, and hope for the best.

What To Do

Blend all ingredients and enjoy!

Also, check out YouTube for recipes! I kind of love the channel: Blended Recipes. Here’s their Pom Pom Protein Smoothie below (I love the pom pom name, mostly because it reminds me of cheerleading).
