Dairy Free Banana Nut Oatmeal Smoothie
When I first heard about putting oats into a smoothie I thought it was gross. Drinking oatmeal?
Now I think it is genius.
When I try to persuade clients to eat oatmeal for helping to decrease their cholesterol levels (yes it does work), the most common response I get is "I don't have time in the morning".
Now you can have your oats in no time at all.
Banana Nut Oatmeal Smoothie
3/4 cup almond milk
1 frozen banana, cut into slices
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 Tbsp walnuts
2 tsp honey
Mix all ingredients together in a small blender until a smooth puree is formed. Add more or less almond milk to get desired consistency.
