Cherry, Vanilla Bean Oatmeal SmoothieSubmitted by: JOYOUSNLAW
1/2 cup uncooked oats (old fashioned rolled oats recommended; do not use steel cut oats)
3 teaspoons dried chia seeds
1 1/4 cup skim milk
1 cup cherry juice
1 cup low-fat yogurt (Greek yogurt recommended)
2 cup fresh, frozen, or canned cherries
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)
IF TOO THICK after the fridge soak, add more juice or milk and shake jar/container or return to blender to combine.
FOR A SMOOTHER CONSISTENCY, return to blender after the fridge soak and blend again.
TO FREEZE: May be frozen after the 4 hour soak in the fridge. To thaw, move to fridge a day ahead so it is thawed for drinking the next day. For faster thaw, place frozen jar/container in bowl of cold water on the counter for 1-2 hours. Shake before drinking.
*If using fresh, frozen, or canned cherries, reduce milk to 1/2 cup.
