If you’re unable to find fresh blackberries, frozen berries work wonderfully. Not a fan of blackberries? Not a problem, this recipe is perfectly suited to substitute any of your favorite berries. It’s equally tasty using blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries.

What You’ll Need to Make this Oat Smoothie

  • Blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • A little water
  • Almonds
  • Old-fashioned oats
  • Greek style plain yogurt
  • Oat milk (or almond milk)
  • Honey (or agave)
  • Ice (optional)

How to Make this Blackberry Oat Smoothie Recipe:

Step One:

  • In a blender, add the blackberries and blend until smooth, dividing mixture between two glasses.

Step Two:

  • Rinse blender, then add remaining ingredients and blend. If using ice, you only need a small handful, and this will give you a thicker consistency.

Step Three:

  • Pour the milk mixture into the glasses over the berry mixture. Garnish with frozen blackberries. Stir and enjoy straight away. If the smoothie sits for a bit, just blitz it for a few more seconds to bring it together again.

Tips and Tricks:

  • During blackberry season, buy extra and freeze to enjoy the rest of the year.
  • To make frozen blackberry garnishes, using fresh berries, simply thread a few onto the cocktails sticks, then freeze on a tray for a few hours. When the berries come out of the freezer, they will become all frosty and gorgeous.
  • You can use frozen blackberries for this recipe instead of using ice, giving it a nice cold and thicker consistency without watering the flavor down.
  • If you fancy other berries, simply substitute them for the blackberries and enjoy.
  • You can substitute your favorite milk for the oat milk.
