A HEART HEALTHY STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE WITH MINT AND OATS

Mint leaves

I have forgotten to say that the HotM theme this month (Michelle of The Accidental Scientist is holding the reins) is Herbs, check out the announcement here and participate! I still eat a lot of strawberries and now and then I use them for a heart healthy smoothie like this. Instead of milk I used rolled oats that I had soaked in tepid water until they were really soft and then mixed together with the other ingredients so there’s no animal fat in this smoothie, just heart healthy fruit and oats, that wonder grain when it comes to heart health!  And with a little mint, it picks you up anytime! 

A Heart Healthy Strawberry Smoothie with Mint and Oats

A HEART HEALTHY STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE WITH MINT AND OATS
1 servings

4 tblsp rolled oats
5 tblsp water
5 big sweet strawberries (sometimes I deep freeze them before using them so that I get a very cold smoothie)
1 small banana
a sprig of fresh mint leaves
(honey)

– Mix oats and water and let it stand for about 45-60 minutes or more if needed. The oats have to be really soft.
– Cut strawberries and banana into pieces, put these in a mixer, add the oats together with the water, add the mint and run the mixer until smooth.
– If needed you can sweeten the smoothie with honey.
