Oatmeal Berry Shake

Boy time flies.  I have neglected this blog for too long.  So to revive it, how about a nice Oatmeal Berry Shake?

This is a recipe I developed when the protein powder I got at Costco increased from $28 to $48.  I just can't justify paying that much when I can create something just as satisfying as well as healthier.  

The ingredients are as follows:

1/2 cup Trader Joe's French Style Organic Yogurt
1/2 cup Knudsens 2% fat cottage cheese
1 1/2 cups fat free milk
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 banana
1/2 of either Trader Joe's Fancy mixed berries or Organic Blueberries
2 cups ice
1 small handful of fresh baby spinach.
3 to 4 packets of Splenda

So basically you combine all the ingredients in a blender.  The key is blend the ingredients until the oatmeal will be suspended within the ice as well as completely chopped up.

Try other ingredients.  Other items I include to replace the berries include peaches, Trader Joe's pineapple tidbits, a tablespoon of peanut butter.  

The ingredients above will get you a shake that is about 500 to 550 calories.  By leaving out the banana you can reduce the shake by 100 calories.

I hope you enjoy!!!
