|1 cup||frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries)|
|1/2 cup||yogurt (vanilla works best, but plain would suffice)|
|1 packet||instant oatmeal|
|1/2 cup||milk (or vegan milk substitute)|
Add milk and instant oatmeal. Add spices. Add yogurt, then berries. Blend until smooth.
Notes: Our first attempt used maple and brown syrup flavored instant oatmeal. The result was pleasant, but too sweet for our tastes. Unflavored instant oatmeal helped the cinnamon and nutmeg to stand out.
For a thicker smoothie, add another packet of instant oatmeal or half a cup of rolled oats.
Makes about two cups.
