Oat Milk Strawberry Smoothies

Photobucket

My 15-year-old daughter has recently decided to try a vegan diet, so she's been poring over internet sites to gain information. In her searches for a milk substitute, she came across oat milk and I had to give it a try. I love making my own milks using nuts or rice, but I had never heard of using oats as a base. While I love nut milk with a passion, it's time-consuming to make and takes a lot of exertion to squeeze the milk through the bag and sometimes I just can't seem to get up the gumption to make it. The oat milk recipe we found calls for, among other things, cooked oats and a banana, and does not require a nut bag, so it seemed perfect.

After our milk was blended, we poured it in a glass, added ice, and tasted it...

It was creamy and oaty and I knew it would make a great base for smoothies and other products which call for milk. So.... I threw in some frozen strawberries, added some sweetener, and we drank delicious strawberry smoothies in the kitchen...

We will definitely be making this again. Thanks for listening.

  3. When you have both skin tags as well as warts on your body, you can use the
    skin tag removal products that will also help you to remove
    the skin warts. The good news is that normally they are benign tumors that won't affect your health. This method typically involves some pain or discomfort.

  7. If you are looking for the most suitable bowtie for a particular event, visit Tiecoon.
    This step also involves threading the braid’s tag end through the
    eye of the hook. A dignified look can be instantly received with such a tie.

  8. (Click here to learn more about overtraining) This step also includes
    motivation and dedication. Eating out, especially fast food,
    frequently can do harm to your health. Eating based on your mood
    is not the path to healthy weight gain.

  10. First of all, unlike having to eat 6 times per day every day your
    training should only be done 1 time per day 3 days per week with at least one day of
    rest between training days. You can readily adopt
    a complete training plan that allows you to work on all of your muscle
    groups. How to gain weight for skinny guys is about attitude, exercise,
    nutrition, and rest.
