"This is a fast vegan smoothie with a deep pink color and a rich, creamy texture. VERY filling, and perfect for people in a rush in the morning. You don't have to give up a good breakfast when it's this fast to make! I use vitamin fortified soy milk." — ASTROPHE

I absolutely love smoothies!! They are one of my favorite breakfast items....except I made this one for my lunch today. I love the oatmeal in it, but think that 1/2 a cup is a little too much. I used quick cooking oats since that's what I normally have on hand and substituted a container of strawberry yogurt for the strawberries. I have not been able to find a decent batch of strawberries yet this year. They are not sweet for some reason, so I'm a little hesitant to buy them. Anyway, the oatmeal made this smoothie VERY filling and I too omitted the vanilla and sugar since I used vanilla flavored soy milk. Great new find...thanks Astrophe.
Since Hubs is not a fan of oatmeal (except in cookies) I thought I'd try sneaking some in this drink and make him something really wholesome and satisfying. It didn't really work. Even using the Vitamix it didn't blend to complete smoothie smoothness and creaminess and the uncooked oatmeal taste was unpleasantly apparent. I used regular milk instead of soy, and had I skipped the oats I think he would have been a happier camper.
I put the oats in first and ground them fine. It was great!!! Very filling and yummy.
GREAT! i loved this recipe it was wonderful. it make the oatmeal less grainy, i put that in the blender first and pureed it until it was powdery, then added the rest of the ingredients. its so good!
FABULOUS! I have never tried a smoothy with oatmeal! Who'da thunk! Well this is great. I also tried a variation of using fresh juice in place of the soymilk. Fresh pineapple juice was especially yummy! Also, when you use juice in place, no sugar or vanilla is needed. Thanks for this great idea. I am thinking of trying wheat flakes too!
This is a great morning smoothie. If I don't have frozen strawberries I make sure the banana is frozen.. one of them has to be or else it is too liquidy. Also, substituting half the strawberries with peaches is a great combo too. This recipe says 2 servings, but really it's the size of a regular smoothie you'd get at a place like Jamba Juice.
I ran the oatmeal through my blender before adding the rest of the ingredients. I used a frozen banana as well as the frozen strawberries and used whole milk. (We don't drink soy.) I thought it was good, as did my kids. The sugar wasn't really needed, IMO, as I felt it was sweet enough on it's own. It's just a personal preferance.
This is delicious! I grind up the oatmeal in the blender first and sometimes use a combination of frozen strawberries and peaches. I love the thick texture the oats give it, and it's very filling. My boyfriend begs for these.
