• Make ahead oatmeal breakfast smoothies

    Taking a day away from my blog challenge, I have been wanting to share with you this really awesome recipe! My mornings are crazy so finding something that was easy and healthy has been my mission. After doing some digging around online I found what I think is the best oatmeal smoothie.
