Multitasking My Milkshake

 I'm a sucker for alliteration. This is not a milkshake. It's really a smoothie. But "I Blended My Steel-Cut Oatmeal and Green Smoothie Into One Cup This Morning" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

Well folks, this morning I woke up, ran a whole 1.3 miles on my treadmill (big time, I know) and then couldn't decide what to have for breakfast. Did I want oatmeal or a green smoothie? And why on earth couldn't I have both and combine these lovely meals into one. In a cup.

I don't know a woman who's not good at multitasking. When I found myself at work yesterday under a giant heap of paper patterns, thread, beads and crochet trims designing fabulous fashion for the masses and trying to book tickets home for Thanksgiving and eat my lunch all at the same time, and then China called and I had to talk them down from the ledge of the latest crisis while all of this was all happening, I thought, "There's almost nothing I can't combine."

So that's just what I did. For breakfast. And if you think it's gross, it's not. It's glorious. And insanely delicious. Dare you to try it, loves.

Green Oatmeal Smoothie
Serves 1


1 Banana
1 C. Cooked Steel Cut Oats
1 tsp. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Ground Flax Seed
1/2 C. Packed Kale Leaves (stems removed)
1/2 C. Packed Spinach Leaves
1/2-1 C. Almond Milk

Blend all in blender until smooth and creamy. Enjoy!

(That's my new favorite cup, by the way. It's made by Aladdin and is BPA free. I bought it at Target for $9.99. It's pretty much almost as amazing as my breakfast.)



  1. Sounds and looks bizarre, but I believe that it's probably delicious!

  2. I bet that is just delish...and portable to boot!

  3. Oh I think I will go purchase that cup :)

  4. i've been seeing oatmeal in smoothies a lot lately! it sounds wonderful.

  5. i must be honest. that looks disgusting. i'm not trying it. but i still love you...a ton.

  6. I'm not going to lie, that looks awful. But I do love smoothies.

  7. Just came across your post via Twitter. This looks very interesting. But we HAVE to try it.
