Adding a little cooked oatmeal to this blueberrry smoothie means it has serious staying power.
Note: This recipe is a great way to use leftover cooked oats. If you need to make some from scratch, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add ½ cup steel cut oats. Reduce heat to low and cook oats for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Let cool before using.
