That's quite a smoothie.<br><br>
I never thought smoothies were filling enough, but the oatmeal you've added might help with that.

I eat a smoothie for lunch each day based on a "recipe" from my mom:<br><br>
1-1.5 c. frozen berries*<br>
1/2 c. vanilla yogurt<br>
1/3-1/2 c. milk<br>
2 tbsp. vanilla whey powder<br><br>
*all measurements are estimates - make to preference<br><br>
I make enough for a whole week, put in the freezer for storage, then "unfreeze" each day for lunch. Yum!<br><br>
And yes, there are no ice cubes in the recipe.

Smoothies are the shit for sure...I can't believe how good AND healthy they are.<br><br>
Mine usually follow this basic structure -<br><br>
Banana<br>
Strawberries (fresh if possible)<br>
Assorted fruit flavored yogurt...all sorts<br>
Some sort of fruit juice - usually OJ<br>
Maybe a little Gatorade powder<br>
Ice<br>
Any other fruits I can find<br><br>
I usually make about a 32 oz. one and have that along with something for a meal. Mmmmmmm.

I just love your enthusiasm and friendliness about everything, that's all. You're very charming. Makes me laugh, but not in a mocking way.<br><br>
You da' bomb, Alex.
