WILD BLUEBERRY OAT SMOOTHIE
You might not need another smoothie recipe, but here are my reasons for loving this one: It is yummy, it is dairy-free + sugar-free, it gives you a good dose of antioxidants to help fight against free radicals, and, it is just so purple. You can't feel down while consuming something in such a fun color.
Speaking of smoothies, Eric has a humorous story that includes him talking to the manager at the health food store (rather, confessing) that he tends to eat too many sugary carb calories first thing in the morning. To which the manager replied in an exasperated way, "Well, you could just make yourself a smoothie."
I Love that story. This is a good smoothie.
"No oat milk? No prob. Use unsweetened almond or coconut milk."
Notes: Frozen wild blueberries are from Trader Joe's.
