This is a fast vegan smoothie with a deep pink color and a rich, creamy texture. VERY filling, and perfect for people in a rush in the morning. You don't have to give up a good breakfast when it's this fast to make! I use vitamin fortified soy milk.

I absolutely love smoothies!! They are one of my favorite breakfast items....except I made this one for my lunch today. I love the oatmeal in it, but think that 1/2 a cup is a little too much. I used quick cooking oats since that's what I normally have on hand and substituted a container of strawberry yogurt for the strawberries. I have not been able to find a decent batch of strawberries yet this year. They are not sweet for some reason, so I'm a little hesitant to buy them. Anyway, the oatmeal made this smoothie VERY filling and I too omitted the vanilla and sugar since I used vanilla flavored soy milk. Great new find...thanks Astrophe. Read More

Since Hubs is not a fan of oatmeal (except in cookies) I thought I'd try sneaking some in this drink and make him something really wholesome and satisfying. It didn't really work. Even using the Vitamix it didn't blend to complete smoothie smoothness and creaminess and the uncooked oatmeal taste was unpleasantly apparent. I used regular milk instead of soy and had I skipped the oats I think he would have been a happier camper. Read More

FABULOUS! I have never tried a smoothy with oatmeal! Who'da thunk! Well this is great. I also tried a variation of using fresh juice in place of the soymilk. Fresh pineapple juice was especially yummy! Also, when you use juice in place, no sugar or vanilla is needed. Thanks for this great idea. I am thinking of trying wheat flakes too! Read More

I ran the oatmeal through my blender before adding the rest of the ingredients. I used a frozen banana as well as the frozen strawberries and used whole milk. (We don't drink soy.) I thought it was good, as did my kids. The sugar wasn't really needed, IMO, as I felt it was sweet enough on it's own. It's just a personal preferance. Read More

This is a great morning smoothie. If I don't have frozen strawberries I make sure the banana is frozen.. one of them has to be or else it is too liquidy. Also substituting half the strawberries with peaches is a great combo too. This recipe says 2 servings but really it's the size of a regular smoothie you'd get at a place like Jamba Juice. Read More

This is delicious! I grind up the oatmeal in the blender first and sometimes use a combination of frozen strawberries and peaches. I love the thick texture the oats give it and it's very filling. My boyfriend begs for these. Read More

I LOVE this smoothie! I've made it literally hundreds of times since I first found it two years ago. It has just the right amount of sweetness, and it's thick and filling with the strawberries and oatmeal, so I often have it as a meal . Like others, I always process the oats first to a powder. I then add the milk, and I add just enough strawberries to meet the level of milk instead of counting them, since the size of the strawberries often varies. I find this gives it just the right consistency every time! Thanks for a great recipe!! Read More
