Banana Oat Breakfast Smoothie

This smoothie calls for rolled oats to be placed right in the blender.  I'd heard of this before and have been wanting to try it.  I didn't notice much of a consistency difference, it was a little more filling than most but still not a substantial breakfast in my book.

  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 banana, cut into thirds (I recommend freezing beforehand to make the smoothie icy)
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a blender, combine oats, yogurt, banana, fat-free milk, honey, and cinnamon; puree until smooth. Serve immediately.

It sure sounds and looks good!

I agree with you ... I'm never satisfied with a liquid breakfast - or any meal for that matter. I have the need to chew! :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
