Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie

Ever wish you could have dessert for breakfast? This smoothie is wonderful, and is as thick as you want it to be — simply start with 1/2 a cup of cold water and add more to get your desired thickness. I love that this recipe includes raw oats — a great source of fiber, and it fills you right up. This smoothie is truly a meal replacement, and it’s delicious to boot!
