All I could think about when I woke up this morning were oatmeal toppings!
I wanted granola, I wanted melted peanut butter, I wanted cottage cheese…
I did not want oatmeal however.
My craving for real Spring weather is not satisfied yet but my appetite has already decided that it is getting too much like Spring to keep on eating a steaming bowl of oatmeal in the morning.
Exit hot oatmeal, bring on the smoothies with oatmeal toppings!
In the smoothie: Soy milk, half a banana, 1/4 of an avocado and some lamb’s lettuce. Topped with: 5 t of cottage cheese and melted peanut butter.
This was really amazing!
You can’t call it a light smoothie by any means and I would not recommend drinking this (unless you’re used to drinking your cottage cheese, then go ahead) but it was a filling breakfast and it was really tasty.
I liked the texture as well, because I only used half a banana it wasn’t a thick smoothie but the cottage cheese made up for that lack of texture a lot.
Anyway, I think it’s time for cold oatmeal to make a comeback, or else I’ll have to think of other, more Spring like breakfasts, all ideas are welcome!
