Pink 'n Delicious Morning Smoothie!

So last month for my birthday Sean got me a Magic Bullet, and I'm here to tell you that little machine is super handy in my morning routine! I've used it every day! And it is so versatile, I can use it for smoothies, dressings, sauces, making oat flour, I could go on and on!.. but I won't. But seriously, I love this little guy so much, I don't know how I got along without him!

My favourite way to start the day is with a fresh, fruity smoothie, but I often find that it doesn't give me the protein that I need to get that "start-the-day" boost.. so I've been experimenting. And I'm happy to say, I've found something I love! the Strawberry-Banana-Coconut-Oatmeal smoothie. Wow, that's a mouthful to say.. and this beauty if a mouthful to drink/eat. The oatmeal gives it enough volume to be a meal worthy of mornings and the natural sugars in the fruit help wake me up. Plus I add no-fat Greek yogurt for added protein. I pop it on the base, and 15 seconds later I have my breakfast of champions. Then I have to rush out the door because I'm usually late for the bus!
