Gingery berry oat smoothie

I like smoothies. I especially like smoothies in the summer. Often they are more along the lines of desert and are kind of similar because I keep putting the same ingredients in.

I was inspired to make some different smoothies from Real Simple.

I started by chopping up some fresh ginger.

Next I poured in the oats to let them soak a bit but not the whole 15 min I’m not that patient.

I used super natural yogurt, I’m sure there’s some meaning to that but I really can’t tell you what.

I cut the strawberries in half so they blend a little quicker.

Pour in the Maple syrup and blend with ice.

Now it’s time to see what it tastes like.

I kind of missed the glass there. Things are closer than they look when I’m taking the picture.

The oats were a little gritty but not bad. I couldn’t taste the ginger. I’ll have to put more next time.

I had the rest the next day and the oats had softened and were much better.
