What is your typical breakfast? For me it’s almost always something like so. I’ve been posting a lot of smoothie recipes lately. It’s because they are what I have for breakfast every single morning. My favorite has always been the blueberry oat smoothie, and I never thought I’d find a breakfast smoothie I liked as much until I made this one. Who knew a healthy and quick breakfast could be so incredibly good?

I’ve made these twice in the last two days, and I just wanted to point at the first one was sweeter than the second (even though I used the same batch of strawberries), I think the key is in the bananas. Be sure you use well ripened spotty bananas and if it’s still not sweet enough for you, you can either add in a little honey or agave or the other quarter to half of the banana. A smoothie just needs the right amount of sweetness to be delicious, right?

This is one of the best breakfast smoothies I’ve ever had. I love the strawberry-coconut combination. It just works. They both have very pronounced flavors but the tartness of the strawberries and the enticing flavor of sweet coconut pair amazingly well together. The oats blend in very well (you won’t really even notice they are there, just be sure to use quick oats) and they help make this filling enough to be your main breakfast.

I have the feeling you’re going to be hooked on this smoothie just like I am. Healthy indulgence, oh yes please! Enjoy!
