Oatmeal; name a better staple breakfast, I dare you! It's not only a quick and easy way to get the day started off on the right foot, but they are also loaded with good carbs and fiber - two amazing items for optimal heath. You may be familiar with popular instant oatmeal flavors such as cinnamon apple, strawberries and cream, or peaches and cream, and might even have them in your pantry right now... am I right?!
The problem is that while regular oats are full of health-supporting nutrients, the added flavors in instant oatmeal packets usually contain a ton of sugar and artificial flavorings that may adversely affect your health and weight loss goals. However, my favorite Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal Protein Shake is a great solution for you if you still want to enjoy your strawberries and cream instant oatmeal without all the unnecessary additives!
Blended with 310 Vanilla, frozen strawberries, rolled oats, unsweetened oat milk, plain yogurt, and ice, this shake recipe is packed with nutritious, whole food ingredients to fuel a healthy life! Plus, although you may think of oatmeal as a typically a breakfast item, you can enjoy this shake anytime of day, nourishing your body with 21g of protein and 6g of healthy fats, while also indulging in a sweet and creamy treat!
Let’s take a look at some of the major health benefits this Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal Shake has to offer, before we give you the full recipe!
Rich & Satisfying Taste: 310 Vanilla Shake
The first ingredient to provide a yummy, dessert-like base for this shake is 310 Vanilla Shake! The sweetness of this meal replacement shake powder comes from plant-based Stevia, and it also has an indulgent texture – which both help mimic the “cream” aspect of strawberries and cream oatmeal, but without all the sugar, fat, and extra calories. Plus, not only does 310 Vanilla Shake taste amazing and is extremely versatile, but it also contains essential micro and macronutrients to promote shining health...
Along with 15g of plant-based protein to support satiety and help maintain lean muscle, 310 Shakes are also just a great way to get in an abundance of greens, especially if you struggle with your veggie intake (which, even I sometimes do)! With a powerful blend of superfoods including organic broccoli, kale, spinach, alfalfa juice powder, and maca root, (just to name a few), you’ll be adding additional immune-supporting antioxidants into your diet, in a super quick and (of course) deliciously enjoyable way.
Naturally-Sweet, Nutritious Fruit: Strawberries
The next ingredient in this Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal Shake is (drum role please)... strawberries! Frozen strawberries, and frozen fruit in general, are a great option to use because they add a nice thickness to your shake, while also adding major key nutrients along with naturally-sweet, juicy flavor!
Strawberries are bursting with vitamin C and other powerful antioxidants that can support your immune system, and potentially protect your body against oxidative stress. In fact, one cup of this superfruit has more vitamin C than an orange! Not to mention, the natural sweetness of strawberries pair especially well with the vanilla bean notes in 310 Vanilla Shake... I mean, who doesn't love strawberries and cream?!
Filling and Fiber-Packed Grain: Oats
Finally, the last TWO ingredients that we’re going to highlight are of course, oats and oat milk! By adding these ingredients into your shakes, you can easily reap the potential health benefits and tasty flavor of this whole grain, without all the sugar and additives in instant oatmeal. That sounds like a win-win to me!
Oats are an awesome source of beta-glucan – a type of soluble fiber that’s been shown to increase feelings of fullness and promote gut health, while also potentially helping to control blood sugar levels. Adding oats to this recipe, combined with 310 Vanilla Shake, can help promote enhanced satiety so you don't keep coming back to the kitchen with junk food cravings!
Plus, oat milk is one of the most creamy milks out there, giving this shake the texture and flavor it needs to truly mimic strawberries and cream oatmeal!
