Happy Friday, friends!

Here’s wishing your 4th of July celebration was filled with so much fun, yummy foods, great company and surreal fireworks that’s an envy over social media 😉

And if you had a themed celebration, chances are there’s berries sitting in the refrigerator waiting to be utilize in the freshest way imaginable.

Use ’em. Now.

If you know me too well, chances are you’ll know how obsessed I am when it comes to morning oatmeal’s. Here’s a sunny chill smoothie recipe from the archives and a slew of oatmeal ideas which I did for my birthday! As if this is not enough, follow me on Instagram where you’d see a collection of my morning breakfast oatmeal’s.

Told you I’m obsessed 😉

The ritual of toasting old-fashioned oats–adding water–stirring–adding chopped banana–stirring–drizzling some nut milk–more stirring–adding a few drops of vanilla extract–and you guessed it right! more stirring–finally, loading up on toppings and having it steaming hot is my way of beginning the day, therapeutically.

Although I can’t dismiss the fact that summer is at it’s peak and the mere thought of possibly parting with our all time favorite breakfast, breaks my heart. On the other hand, the idea of steaming oats doesn’t sit well in the peak of summer.

What best way to remedy this is by having some chilled or frozen fruits, combining all of your favorite oatmeal ingredients into the blender and whirl it all up into a dreamy creamy smoothie concoction.

Easy as 1-2-3 recipe is below, for an immediate perusal.

Wow! Yummy smoothie with fresh berries and a fresh post to comment on. I can’t believe my luck. This feels like first day first show at a block buster movie.

I am a morning cereals person and an evening milk shake / lassi person. So this recipe will get added to my list of evening drinks. Or should one take it in the morning as it could be quite filling?

I find your oatmeal obsession always amusing on Twitter. You live in a tropical state and have such a liking for something I associate with winter, snow and cold 🙂 May you find many other ways to keep your favourite breakfast during the hot summer months!

Kiran, I love all these ingredients (I have even bought some more almond cream today) but I hardly ever have breakfast… If I do (on holidays or on weekends) it’s always savoury, but your smoothie would be a great afternoon cooling half-snack/half-drink!
