Oatmeal Experiments

I'm going to have to come back to this, recipe-wise. I was throwing this and that in the blender earlier (frozen mangoes, some leftover ripe banana, the last of the Alder's strawberry ice cream, a couple big spoonfuls of nonfat vanilla yogurt, some milk, some ice, and oat bran) and wasn't paying attention to measurements. My brother made me a blueberry smoothie with oats when I was visiting Ohio last November and it was the best breakfast I'd had in a long time. Hit the spot and filled me up. So I decided to use up the last of the oat bran in this batch. And guess what? Manbearcat, husband of Mouse, has approved it! FINALLY a way to get my husband to eat oatmeal! Make it drinkable!

AND as a second experiment: Frozen Oatmeal! Fruit and Oatmealsicles. Oat Pops. Whatever. I used my washable popsicle mold. Ta da! Really yummy and a great way to use leftover smoothie.

You can go HERE for more popsicle recipes at About.com. Popsicle with the mold still on.

They peel off very easily, they're durable and are dishwasher safe. I read some reviews about this popsicle mold before I bought it and was warned it can cause giggle fits in adults with a certain sense of humor. You be the judge.
