Here’s What’s Cooking…Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

Square
The last time I got on pinterest, I ran across this healthy, protein-filled smoothie that I just had to try. For the last couple years, each morning I’ve been having a Carnation Instant Breakfast smoothie, and it was definitely time for a change. I recommend that you add a little bit of milk (about 1/4 cup) to the recipe so that it’s not so thick (the first time I made this, the texture was almost too thick to take–Matt still won’t drink this smoothie because of it). If you’re looking for a quick breakfast that is low-calorie and leaves you feeling full til lunchtime, this is the smoothie to try! 
Banana Almond Oatmeal Smoothie (from chiquitabananas.com)

  • 2 whole Chiquita Bananas (best with brown flecks on peel)
  • 2 cups Ice
  • 1/3 cup Yogurt – preferably Greek yogurt flavored with honey  (I used plain vanilla yogurt and just squeezed in a little bit of honey)
  • 1/2 cup Cooked oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup Almonds
  • Pour all ingredients into a blender, putting the ice in last. Serves 2.
