Not only is a smoothie a great way to boost your fruit intake, but it can be a filling meal as well when you add some yoghurt and oats. This Triple Berry Oat Smoothie will definitely add some colour to your morning.
Although winter time doesn’t scream smoothies, sometimes you want something quick and easy that will give you a vitamin boost and still fill a hole, and this Triple Berry Oat Smoothie fits the bill. It’s also perfect for winter because it uses frozen berries when they are out of season.

In the first few weeks of Avery’s life, it seemed like we lived on smoothies. They were quick and easy to make and gave us an energy boost when coffee seemed to have stopped working. They also made us feel a little bit healthier amongst the takeaway pizza and fries.
We are big advocates of eating whole fruit, but when you need something in a rush, drinking a smoothie just seems so much easier. So, we like to consider ourselves a bit of an authority on smoothies now and you will be seeing lots of smoothie recipes. Filling ones too, because a smoothie can and should be filling, you just have to bulk them out a bit.
You could also use less milk and a few more oats and it turns in to a thick dessert. Sprinkle with some chocolate chips and you have yourself a dessert.
We try to eat seasonally as much as possible in our house, but we aren’t totally strict about that, although it’s something we will try to be better with this year. We try to keep our fresh berry eating to just the summer months when they are at their best, but that doesn’t mean that we have to miss out, because Dole have a fantastic selection of Frozen Fruit packs that we keep our freezer stocked with.
You can enjoy all the benefits of fresh fruit in resealable packs! Each fruit is carefully washed and quickly fresh-frozen straight after its been harvested, at peak ripeness, to lock in the delicious fresh flavour. Dole’s new frozen fruit packs preserve the taste, goodness and all the other great stuff that you love about fresh fruit.
What’s more, Dole doesn’t add artificial colours, preservatives, sweeteners or flavouring to any of their fruits. They have re-sealable packs so less food waste and great tasting fruits all year round!
We use frozen fruit in smoothies, on top of oats, mixed in to some yoghurt or we make healthy ice cream with it. Always have your freezer stocked up with some Dole fruit and as a result you will have yourself some quick meals and snacks on hand.
