A decadent blueberry crisp breakfast smoothie incorporating all the flavors of the classic dessert, including blueberries, cinnamon, and brown sugar.
What can you say about this smoothie that its name doesn’t already imply? This recipe came about one morning when Kim and I wanted something sweet for breakfast. I know, I know, it’s a pretty unhealthy recipe, but all I ask is that you try it first. See for yourself and then determine whether or not you enjoy this guilty pleasure. Besides, from time to time, it’s okay to treat yourself to something sugary and delicious. As Kim made our morning cups of coffee, I mosied over to the fridge to see what we could round up.
I happened to notice the frozen blueberries and started brainstorming about how to incorporate these into our breakfast. Kim suggested using brown sugar and cinnamon since they always pair well with berries. Neither of us wanted to prepare a dough, so I figured, why not make this concoction into a drink? It would be easy to do, and we wouldn’t have a lot of leftovers hanging around. Without further adieu, here’s our short and sweet recipe.
Since this drink is low on the labor scale, I won’t spend too much time with idle conversation this time around. Listed below are the instructions and the recipe card. We hope you enjoy this breakfast treat and if you think it might be a little too much for you, do what we did and share the smoothie with someone you love. As always, I wish you a long life, everlasting love, and a full tummy!
When it comes to simplicity, it doesn’t get any easier than this smoothie. In a blender or drink mixer, combine the oats, brown sugar, sliced almonds, vanilla extract, cinnamon, blueberries, and milk. Blend all the ingredients together until the smoothie is creamy and delicious. That’s it, no special handling required. One sip and your taste buds will be reminded of eating a traditional blueberry crisp on a Sunday afternoon!
