In case you missed the memo, I have been pregnant for the last few months. Fortunately, I’ve had a backlog of finished recipes to share with you, so I’ve managed to post every other week for a while. Unfortunately, I had to deal with a lot of morning sickness in my first trimester, so I’ve had to put trying new recipes on hold until I’ve felt better.
During my first trimester, I had to avoid a lot of my favorite go-to breakfast recipes, like my chocolate peanut butter oat smoothie. Sweet meals often left a weird taste in my mouth on a good day and left me feeling queasy on a bad day. However, I did have one smoothie recipe that left me feeling full without triggering my gag reflex: strawberry peach oat smoothies.
I don’t have a clever name for this smoothie. I figured I would go with a straightforward description of the exact ingredients in this recipe: strawberries, peaches, and oats (though I also use milk as a base). Because I hate the taste of bananas, I avoided them completely when throwing this recipe together.
Even without the stereotypical banana, this strawberry oat smoothie is thick, creamy, and delicious. It still has a mild, sweet flavor without tasting too sugary, and thanks to the oats, it’s a great source of fiber. I simply pop everything into a blender, and soon I have a yummy meal with minimal cleanup.
