Blackberry Oatmeal Smoothie

By 9:42 AM ,

My son LOVES smoothies-- loves, loves, loves!  I really should make them more often, and thanks to Pinterest I pinned a great idea, DIY Smoothie Packs!  But like many things I've pinned, I still have yet to do that...

Anyways, I pinned a Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie recipe (which was adapted from this recipe), but since we didn't have any strawberries, I changed it to blackberries!  It was pretty good-- I am not really a big fan of oatmeal in my smoothie; it makes it chunkier.  Although, the blackberry seeds probably didn't help either.  My son loved it though, so that is all that matters.  It was for him anyways!    He loved helping me make it, too : )  He is such a good helper!

1 cup ice
1 small package of blackberries 
1/2 cup Greek yogurt 
1 banana
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 tablespoon sweetener (tried honey, but we ended up adding straight-up sugar!)
1 cup milk 
This smoothie turns into the prettiest deep purple color!  Enjoy! 

Feel free to check out my "Thirsty" Pin Board if you have a chance, I've pinned smoothies, iced coffee, hot chocolate... etc.  All this blogging about drinks really IS making me thirsty!
