Strawberry Fields Smoothie: Organic Squeeze Copycat Recipe!

Strawberry Fields Smoothie

 

I love starting off my day with a nutritionally packed breakfast, and there aren’t many easier or quicker options in those early morning hours than a smoothie. You can throw together an endless combinations of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and even grains to make a varied breakfast every single day. Don’t get me wrong, I love my go-to eggs and avocado, but I can’t eat eggs every day. However, I have no problem starting the day off with a smoothie for months on end, so long as I switch up the ingredients regularly.

 

The drink I’ve been hooked on recently is called the Strawberry Fields Smoothie. I originally drank this delight at my local OKC Organic Squeeze; their smoothies are terrific, and I love the fresh ingredients they use. This smoothie is the perfect combination of strawberries, bananas, oats, almond milk, almonds, flax, dates, agave, and cinnamon. Did you read that there are oats in the smoothie? What a perfect ingredient to use in a breakfast smoothie! Unfortunately, I can’t drop $6.50 on my breakfast every day; I’ll save those purchases for those really rushed mornings when I’m running out the door like a crazy person. Thankfully, I (and you) can whip up one of these filling smoothies at home. All the ingredients are vegan friendly, so everyone can enjoy this drink! You could definitely substitute the almond milk with soy or cow’s milk, or use honey instead of agave syrup if you don’t feel like buying those specific ingredients. But I love the drink just how it was meant to be, and it cost less than $1 a day to make–that’s some serious savings!

 

If you love Organic Squeeze smoothies as much as I do, you can check out my other copycat recipe–the Green Monster smoothie for a veggie-packed option! It’s a powerhouse smoothie to drink after a hard workout. You’ll feel healthier just by looking at its green goodness.

    what blender do you use for your smoothies. My husband and I have been trying to make more but I keep getting frustrated with our blender getting bogged down and not working. Do I need a $500 vitamix to make this smoothie thing work or can you recommend another one or how to prep it differently so this isn’t always happening. Thanks in advance!

      I have a vitamix, but its definitley not a necessity. I know people who have the $99 ninja and it worked great with this recipe. The ninja didnt get it completly smooth, but still a really good consistency. You could always try blending the flax and oats first to help grind them before adding in the liquid and fruit.
