  1. Do you cook the oats first?

  2. That does the t stand for in 1t of flax seeds?

    • 1t stands for 1 teaspoon. Flax is pretty flexible though. You can put in a spoonful of just about any size and be fine. I often just grab a small spoon and dump some in without much worry about accurate measurements of it.

  3. How much liquid do I use if I don’t use a NutriBullet?

    • It can depend on the blender. Usually about a cup is sufficient. I recommend trying that and then if it is too thick, add more. If too thin, add a bit more fruit. Over time you will get a good idea of how much liquid your blender should use.

  4. I made a couple minor changes to this and it was amazing! I used a frozen banana and I added a dash of cinnamon. Yum!

  5. Instead of vanilla yogurt I used plain greek with a tsp of vanilla and two Stevia packets. This tasted great and cut down the sugar content. I think next time I will cook my oats as they sunk to the bottom of the cup as I drank.

  6. This sounds like my idea of smoothy heaven.
    What could I add to this to make it a meal replacement ?

    • This recipe is pretty balanced and could work as a meal replacement as is. But, if you find yourself getting hungry too soon after drinking it, try adding a bit of protien powder or a handful of nuts to increase the protien. You can do that with just about any recipe to make a smoothie work well as a meal replacement.

  7. I will make this my pre-workout breakfast smoothie. How long do you think I should wait after drinking this to go for my workout? I tend to do loads of cardio.
    Thanks!

    • I like to wait a full hour after eating anything substantial, even when it is a smoothie, before working out. But I also tend to get GI issues if I eat anything right before exercise. When doing hard cardio, I often eat something like a banana half an hour before and then I drink my smoothie after. This particular smoothie is great for either-good for pre-workout as fuel, and good for after as a recovery drink.

  8. Love the oatmeal. Definitely going to try it
