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
Serves 1

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.
