Mango Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie will soon be you grab it on the go smoothie once you try it out. It will keep your tummy light but at the same time filled up too till your lunch time without letting you reach for anything to munch on in between.
My home is taken over by ripe mangoes and it smells so heavenly. Apart from eating the fruit as such I’m following quite a lot of ways to use the fruit and enjoying it to the hilt and this breakfast smoothie using mangoes and oatmeal has become my favorite.
I’m a not a breakfast person and I’m slowly but reluctantly changing myself to be a good example for my kids. I like drinking my breakfast as its easy and filling too at the same time.
When I made it the first day, the kid loved it so much and since this smoothie can be prepared by the kids itself, he has started making it all by himself.
He prepares the oatmeal and rests it in the fridge for overnight so that he could blend it all by himself the next morning.
An omelet along with a tall glass of this smoothie becomes his breakfast now-a-days before going to school and you get all the nutrients as well which makes me so happy.
You can also skip cooking the oatmeal totally and add it raw saving even more time. But since my kid is partial to uncooked oats, I let him to cook it before hand. Make sure that you use chilled yogurt, milk and chilled mango for a super chilled smoothie that will so thick and creamy.
Choose ripe mangoes that are fibre free for making smoothies. Adding any form of sweetener like sugar or honey will depend on the sweetness of the fruit.
I have used almonds here, but you can also use flax seeds or sun flower seeds for an even more nutrient hyped smoothie. You can use left over cooked oatmeal without binning it in this smoothie.
