My Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie

Lately I’ve gone back to my “smoothie kick” and I have to say I’m loving it.  I find that it’s much easier to commit to it in the summertime only because your access to fresh fruit is that much easier.

Today I whipped up a blueberry oatmeal smoothie and … yum!

I thought I’d share it with you so you can try it too.

My Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie

Ingredients:

3/4 cup (175 mL) milk
1/2 cup (125 mL) frozen blueberries
1 frozen banana, cut into chunks
2 tbsp (30 mL) instant oats

In blender, combine all ingredients. Purée until smooth.

 

 

SNATCHED Available to Take Home #ad #SNATCHED #SNATCHEDPaintNight

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has one amazing comedic team:  Amy Shumer and Goldie Hawn!  If you haven’t seen this summer’s not-to-be-missed comedy ‘Snatched’ then now is the time to pick it up on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

On August 10th I was invited to attend a Cocktails n’ Canvas Event specifically set up to celebrate the release of SNATCHED in the various take home formats.IMG_2383The evening was a wonderful experience for me … it was actually a first for me.  Considering I often goof up a straight line with a ruler, I didn’t think I’d be able to paint anything.  I was impressed with the end result and think I didn’t do too badly either.

About Snatched:  After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Shumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mom, Linda (Hawn), to travel with her to paradise.  When the trip takes an unexpected turn, the polar opposite mother/daughter duo realize they must settle their differences and work together to escape the outrageous jungle adventure they’ve fallen into.  Schemer and Hawn are a “dream team not to be missed!” – Mark S. Allen, ABC TV
