Spinach oats smoothie







Due to the sedentary lifestyle these days ,knowingly or unknowingly we gulp down so much of the junk food!!!!

Actually we don't agree its junk food ?right ......the pizzas ,burgers ,fries and what not .....?every thing that we love to enjoy at the call of a phone or simply relax with family in a food court of a mall is loaded with so much of trans fat ,salt ...etc ,that our body needs to flush out those toxins on regular interval to avoid any bitter health consequences .We have incorporated these food habits in our lifestyle that we don't even realise that these are junk .

Even my self , not a bare exception .I too love to be lured by such occasional indulgence !!!!(to be read... occasional only!!!  hhmn).But aftermath carry the guilt on my shoulders and weight over my waist line !....) 
And coming to the smoothie......
Spinach is  recognised as one of the functional foods for its wholesome nutritional, antioxidants and anti-cancer composition.
Oats  of course are the power house of nutrients and fibre....
Spinach ,oats  and yogurt are blitzed together to smoothie.I love smoothies and smoothies I think are the easiest and nutritious way to quench the thirst 


So go ahead and make  one for Ur self and your gut is going to say thank you!!!!







INGREDIENTS


  • 2 cups / 340 gms yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cup spinach 
  • 4 tbsp instant oats
  • sugar or honey to taste 
  • 1/4 tsp orange rind 









METHOD

  1. Dry roast oats in a pan until nutty smell emanates from it .
  2. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. In a blender add all the ingredients and blitz it to a smoothie  .
  4. Serve chilled or as it is ....both ways tastes best .



NOTES

  1. Make sure to cool oats to room temperature   to avoid lumps .
  2. I had used 4 tbsp sugar you can add depending on sour or sweetness of yogurt.
  3. Added orange rind just for flavour and to make the kids enjoy spinach .




Yummily,
