Inspired: DIY Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake!

Good Morning All!

I have a breakfast shake I wanted to post about that's super easy and fast!
I was inspired by my friend Melissa who owns the blog "Freeing Imperfections"

Here's her version: 

I was oddly craving peanut butter this morning so I thought I'd try my own version and see how it turned out. I figured I had enough ingredients so why not give it a whirl! 

Here's my particular version and what you'll need:

1. You'll need 1 cup of any milk of your choice
(I use vanilla coconut or vanilla almond since my son can't digest cow's milk)

2. 1/2 cup rolled oats
(Let soak in milk for 10 min or so)

3. A big dollop of vanilla yogurt

4. Take any desired amount of each ingredient above and put in a small glass bowl.
(Don't go crazy on the coconut oil ;)

5. Microwave until melted into creamy goodness!

6. Add this mixture to your yogurt, milk and oats 

7. If desired add a half to full scoop of whey, vanilla (or chocolate) protein powder and blend until smooth!

It should look frothy and creamy like this:
(Please ignore the nails! I am trying to get in for a mani asap! ;)

It's thickish but a hearty shake to be sure.

**Anything with oatmeal should never be drank at a snails pace. Trust me on this.

Shakes really help for busy mommies or for anybody who's in a rush but still wants some nutrition feeding their body. A wonder for blood sugar levels too!

Give this a try and enjoy :)
