I was looking for a light snack after a big breakfast and this was perfect. I substituted cooked farro for the oatmeal since I had some on hand and I threw in a teaspoon full of chia seeds rather than using the flax powder because I had that too. I also cheated with bottled orange juice rather than squeezing my own. It was still good and I will make it again.

I have a little bullet blender so I halved the recipe and it filled me up! Was almost too thick but I could have added milk or more oj to it. Is an entire breakfast in a cup! Will make this again

I have never been much of a smoothie fan, but this is very easy and refreshing. I didn't have orange zest on hand, so I used lemon, then added a couple of fresh strawberries to the mix.

Absolutely DELICIOUS! This is a perfect breakfast for parents & kids alike on a busy morning (especially if you do a little prep work the night before). This recipe will be a definite keeper!
