Oats and Mango breakfast smoothie combines the healthy goodness of oats with antioxidant rich seasonal mangoes for a quick breakfast in a glass for busy people!
For those of you who despise oats, I have one theory about oats. The simpler and blander an ingredient, the more you can dress it up, the more creative you can get. It’s like working on a blank canvas. Oats for me is one such blank canvas, it is just there to absorb any flavours you might care too add. This Oats and Mango Breakfast Smoothie in a glass is a two minute breakfast. With something as fast and healthy as this one on hand, you have no excuses for skipping the most important meal of the day.

Very good idea… will definitely try it out.
A very healthy breakfast, which can be gulped down at one go 🙂
Hey NanditaAre there any other just-as-good fruit options? Mango isnt very easily available everywhere, here in the US.Thanks in advance-altoid
very very healthy breakfast lady ….I wish i could have them today for breakfast
I eat fruit n cream oatmeal atleast 3 times a week and this has never occured to me. A great one, I will definitely try.
nandita and altoid,we tried this for breakfast today with peaches and raspberries (frozen) and loved it. thanks.
Well if you’re going give me oats with mango, then okay, I promise to have my breakfast everyday 🙂
wow thats a fantastic way to serve oats. i will try this i have mango and peaches!
Ah in my early I-hate-oats phase I used to cover up the blandness by blending the goop with a ripe banana and drink it up warm. Heaven! 😀
A healthy drink Nandita. Very nice. Viji
Great entry. Love anything with mango.
Oats and mango? I like the sound of that!Paz
Hi Nandita, Loved the recipe. Anything with Mango will do for me. Have loads of thai mangoes at home, would love to try it out.
Great idea for healthy breakfast. I eat a lot of porridge but never thought of turning it into a smoothie!
Nandita, I really like this idea because though I always want to increase my consumption of oats they are not really a high favourite in the form of porridge for me as I don’t like the their texture too much ,but I think as a cool milkshake it will be much easier to take in. I will have to use canned mango pulp though so I guess skipping the sugar will be good idea.
