I have been on an Oatmeal kick lately, and with all these yummy berries on sale at the grocery store and all over at the farmer’s market I wanted to go for a fun metabolism boosting antioxidant filled breakfast, and it was delicious! If you have frozen blueberries they will work well too, just defrost overnight in the fridge.
1/2 cup Oatmeal
2 tbsp Greek Yogurt
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Honey
In a small sauce pan get 1 cup water boiling then add oatmeal and reduce to low until all water is absorbed. While the oatmeal is doing its thing smash 10 blueberries with the back of a spoon in a small bowl, mix in yogurt, vanilla and honey and set aside.
Once your oatmeal is done turn off heat and add the yogurt mixture to the oatmeal and mix well. Drop half of the remaining berries into the bottom of a small bowl, top with oatmeal and garnish with your remaining berries. Serve with a smile and a cup of green tea, you are enjoying a metabolism boosting breakfast!
I typically give you all the nutritional information, I didn’t do all the math for this specific recipe but if you check out my Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal you may get a good idea of fat, fiber, protein and carbs.
