Pro tip : Oats in your smoothies keep you fuller for longer


Maybe you love smoothies, but don't really love how hungry you feel an hour or so after you drink one. Make your smoothies oat-standing by adding oats to them. They won't be floating around helplessly like alphabet noodles in alphabet soup. Pulse them before you add them to your smoothies so that they disperse evenly throughout the drink. Adding oats in your smoothies is a fail-safe trick that will increase your fibre intake while making your smoothie thicker and equally as delicious. PumpUp member @wigart created a perfectly banana raspberry oat smoothie that will last you throughout the morning. You'll want to chop, blend, sip, repeat.
