Strawberry Spinach Smoothie

Last month I made a horrible discovery, I’m allergic to Greek yogurt.  Not a dairy allergy, but to the proteins in Greek yogurt.  This was awful, I eat it practically everyday. I use it in place of sour cream all the time. I need Greek yogurt in my life, but the way it makes me feel, alas I can not have it anymore.  What would I have for breakfast….. I can still eat regular yogurt without adverse effects, so I was eating that, but when I roll out of bed, my feet hit the floor and walk the girls at least a couple of miles, plus I’m busy doing laundry, and everything else that has to be done, and I need a substantial  breakfast. So I started doing this smoothie and breakfast is much better and a little more hearty.  It starts with ground up rolled oats ground up in the mixer

oh and there’s a frozen banana in there that didn’t get to the photo shoot on time! I’ve also made it with blueberries and it’s equally as good, so pick your favorite fruit and blend up some goodness for you!
