February is Heart Health Month, fitting being the month of love. Wendy, our host this month, decided to help us improve our diets by adding more heart healthy fiber.
The American Heart Association provides great recourse if you’re looking for healthy eating. An entire page on whole grains and fiber is a great place to start!
Like most of my Foodie friends, I used oats in my recipe.
I like throwing oats into smoothies for a little extra boost of fiber and substance. I made this smoothie last year with some extra beets and was saving it for February!
This recipe makes 1 smoothie.
Heart Beet Smoothie
- 1/2 C fresh cranberries
- 5 whole frozen strawberries
- 1/4 C chopped beets
- 1/4 C old fashioned or quick cook oats
- 1/4 C whole milk vanilla yogurt
- 1/4 C whole milk
- Place ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
