A Berry Sweet and Baked Day~


This recipe can be redone in a variety of ways, try blackberries or rasberries maybe? I like almond milk, but have used coconut milk before. Greek yogurt is so much higher in protein, and adds to the smoothie consistency. Play around with your smoothie to make a healthy snack for yourself or your family, kids love the color.

Blueberry Boysenberry Smoothie

  • 1 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 1/3 cup frozen boysenberries
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp old fashion oats
  • 2 tsp honey

Puree all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!

This delicious treat can be made Sunday night and then eaten all week long as breakfast. Just cut a piece and heat up. What a mommy timesaver! Yummy and healthy.

makes 6 servings
nutritional value will vary depending on the fruit and ingredients you use


1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup maple syrup (I used sugar free)
1 cup milk (I used skim)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup blueberries or raspberries, fresh or frozen, divided


1. Preheat the oven to 375F.

2. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix the oats, half of the walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine. In a liquid measuring cup, combine the syrup, milk, egg, butter, and vanilla.

3. Spread the sliced bananas in a single layer over the bottom of the baking dish. Top with half of the berries. Sprinkle the dry oat mixture over the fruit in an even layer. Pour the liquid ingredients evenly over the oats.

4. Sprinkle the remaining nuts and berries over the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the top is browned and the oats have set. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
