I know this can work with even super selective eaters as I have done it many times. Admittedly with home-made ice cream more than a smoothie, but the base is pretty much the same.
Adding some oat flour – aka ‘magic dust’ to the smoothie is often not a big step. As it will change it texturally, I advise making in into a new food and serving in a bowl rather than a glass. We can make this special with a fancy bowl and a spoon.
REMEMBER: smaller is better. Add a sprinkle for buy-in rather than a tablespoon. Many of these things take time. But taking time produces results.
If you have a non-oat eater, this is the first step towards porridge, for example.
I spent about an hour yesterday working on a home-made ‘Up & Go’. Frustratingly, not quite there yet but watch this space. I think the concept of breakfast drinks is great, just not fond of all the ingredients in the packaged ones so wanting to do a home-made one that rocks.
