blueberry lemon oat smoothie with blueberry streusel topping

Breakfast in bed.

Have you ever had breakfast in bed? Come to think of it, I’ve never consumed any meal in my bed.  I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

On one side, if someone were to serve me up a big ‘ol stack of flapjacks with syrup and a cup of joe, there is a 97.6% chance the syrup will end up all over the duvet cover and under my pillowcase.

But! On the other side, I wouldn’t mind Mr. B serving me a delicious, hearty breakfast in bed every now and again. It’s very Downton Abbey-ish. I didn’t know this, but it was proper for a married woman to be served breakfast in bed. I’m kind of digging that tradition.

Since Mr. B is traveling, the next best thing is a Noosa-licious brekkie in bed! Oh,yes! The kind folks over at Noosa Finest Yoghurt delivered fresh yogurt to my door a couple of weeks ago. Talk about first-class service. Noosa (Aussie) style yoghurt is made in small batches on a family-owned farm right here in Colorado!

They have a wide variety of flavors, but my favorite is definitely the lemon.  I think it works perfectly in this blueberry oat smoothie. Something about blueberry and lemon together that makes the world a better place. Plus, it’s like free brain food to start your morning off on the right foot!

And speaking of starting things off on the right foot! The sweet folks of Noosa Finest Yoghurts want to offer a chance to win a Noosa-licious brekkie in bed!

Blueberry Lemon Oat Smoothie with Blueberry Streusel Topping


for the smoothie:
2/3 cups Nossa Lemon Yogurt
2/3 cups Old fashioned Oats
2 bananas, diced
2 tablespoons chia seeds
dash of cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
1/4 frozen blueberries

for the streusel:
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted


for the smoothie:
In a small food processor (I use a small Cuisinart one or you can place everything in a jar with a lid and add it a food processor later), place all ingredients. Place in fridge overnight. Morning of, blend the ingredients until slightly smooth. Pour into a breakfast bowl and garnish with streusel and a drizzle of honey. Omit streusel if you wan to keep it healthier.

for the streusel:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. In a bowl, combine ingredients. Place streusel on baking sheet and spread evenly with the back of a spoon. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. You might want to stir the streusel occasionally making sure it doesn't burn.
