Its recipe 4 of my ‘7 breakfasts for 7 days’ recipe challenge. Today I am bringing you something that is healthy, delicious, easy to make. And most importantly for the commuters out there, something portable. Lets hear it for my Gluten Free Very Berry Oat Shake….. With just a few simple ingredients you will have a fruity filling breakfast in your hands and ready to go go go, just like you 😀
Cold, frosty and really creamy and not an unhealthy ingredient in sight. Just frozen fruit, Arla BoB milk, some gluten free oats and a touch of maple syrup, for those of us that have a super sweet tooth. Are you wondering what all this breakfast madness is all about? Its a challenge set by Arla a farmer owned dairy to try and encourage us all to choose a better start to the day and have a healthy breakfast.
They have chosen a bunch of different UK based food bloggers and challenged us to come up with 7 healthy breakfast recipes that can be made in under 6 minutes. Research has shown that is all we Brits spend on making and consuming breakfast. Hopefully you will find some inspiration in the recipes I am sharing with you, be sure to check out the other ones at the bottom of the post and to stay tuned for the remaining 3 recipes.
We were also asked to take into consideration people that eat breakfast on the go, and this is a perfect dish for them. You can quite happily sip away on this as you read your morning paper on your commute into work on the train or bus. Please no paper reading if you are driving….. or sipping on anything. Both hands on the wheel please! If you are driving then just screw the lid onto this cute Kilner jar and pop it in your bag to enjoy at your desk.
Gluten Free Very Berry Oat Shake
I’m really lucky I don’t suffer from any food allergies. I just like to try and make my dishes accessible to as many people as possible. Especially for those that do suffer from issues like gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. So I use certified gluten free oats in a lot of my recipes. But if this is not a problem for you then by all means use regular oats. They will work perfectly in this shake.
I have used frozen fruit in the gluten free very berry oat shake. I like the consistency frozen fruit gives a shake or smoothie and it saves having to add ice cubes as its lovely and frosty. But by all means you can use fresh fruit and either pop in a couple of ice cubes to cool it down. Or if you have a strong enough blender, blend a few ice cubes into the shake itself.
